About the book

The classic reference for managers and academics seeking a deeper knowledge of the interplay between organizational culture dynamics and leadership is Organizational Culture and Leadership. Author Edgar Schein is known as the "Father" of organizational culture, with a reputation for his knowledge and research in the field. In this book, he examines and illustrates the abstract concept of culture through case studies, demonstrating its significance in the management of organizational change. This new fifth edition demonstrates how culture has become a popular concept, resulting in a wide range of research and implementation by various organizations. It also expands on the role of national cultures in influencing culture dynamics, as well as some practical concepts for dealing with international differences.

 

As the cultural concerns vary at each stage, special attention is paid to how the function of leadership changes with the age of the company, from inception to mid-life to old age. Culture change management is emphasized as a fundamental concern of leader conduct at each level and in various types of companies.

 

This seminal work is widely regarded as the definitive resource in the discipline. This fifth edition includes 25% new and revised material, based on a wide range of research, to present the most important new concepts and viewpoints alongside the basic culture model that has served to define the discipline.
