A Few Books I Highly Recommend to
Organization Theorists & Researchers
Stewart's book, The
Ethnographer's Method 1998. Essential reading for people setting
to conduct real ethnographic research (as opposed to those who just wander
around a site for a few hours and ask questions).
- James N. Baron and David M. Kreps,
Strategic Human Resources: Frameworks for General Managers, 1999. An
absolutely excellent use of the sociological, pyschological, and economic
literature on human resource management. One of the few books I would
recommend for EITHER an MBA course OR a sociology course.
- Linda Argote,Organizational
Learning: Creating, Retaining, and Transferring Organizational
Knowledge. 1999. A wonderful integration of Linda's own research and
review of the organizational learning literature. It showcases her
innovative research designs.
- Leigh Thompson, Makin
the Team: A Guide for Managers, 2000. A superb review, integration,
synthesis, and application of what social scientists know about
teamwork. As useful for professionals as it is for the MBA students who
will probably buy most of the copies!
reviews of books on teaching. Books I recommend to people interested
in learning more about teaching and learning.
- The PSED Handbook you have all been waiting for! The Handbook of Entrepreneurial Dynamics
2004. You need this book to be able to use the PSED effectively. If you don't know what the PSED is, then you need to go look
at this link to see why you should know what it is!
