When you escape.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

Social media is still a bit all over the place, so let’s conti­nue our lit­tle lite­ra­ry stroll. So, as a result of my research method and my noting down infor­ma­tion tech­nique, I regai­ned my confi­dence and deci­ded to conti­nue my adven­ture. The next book, after the addi­tion of Mohr­man & Mohrman’s work, was Orga­ni­za­tions in Action by James D. Thomp­son. A book whose struc­ture wins first prize.

As well as its struc­ture, Thompson’s work repre­sents a small mas­ter­piece com­bi­ning refe­rences, expe­rience and model­ling. This is a flag­ship pro­ject we’re tal­king about. Even today, Thompson’s book ranks third in my lite­ra­ry refe­rence clas­si­fi­ca­tion algorithm.

In short, Thompson’s model explains how and why a for-pro­fit orga­ni­sa­tion acts the way it does. Com­bi­ning concepts of psy­cho­lo­gy and socio­lo­gy, he arrives at a model that is quite fai­th­ful to what his suc­ces­sors obser­ved in their time. Want a glimpse of what a book looks like after a first rea­ding? Here you go.

It was after rea­ding Thompson’s book that I tack­led the next book, Alfred Dupont Chand­ler, Jr., Stra­te­gy and Struc­ture: Chap­ters in the His­to­ry of the Indus­trial Enterprise.
