Description

In this book, first published in 1975, the author critically examines the organisation of work, the systems of control, and the patterns of authority in British establishments. By bringing together detailed descriptions of alternative forms of work organisation and management from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the USA, Paul Dickson provokes considerable thought as to the extent to which these models could be developed and applied in the UK. This title will be of interest to students of business studies and human resource management.
