How to Survive in an Organization

Hurry - Only 4 left in stock!
This is an unusual book. It charts a never-before course for the "ways and means" of functioning in a large organisation, public or private, profit or non-profit. In the world of excessive wordage and visual manipulation called "spin" the imagery often presented in the organisation is often illusory bordering on myth. Factor in human behaviour, which is not always predictable nor benign, and you have a setting that demands understanding. And as that understanding is presented to you the reader -- particularly if you have any organisational experience -- your head will nod in agreement and wonder, as you turn the pages. Author and Organisation Expert James Heaphey brings that understanding to you, by starting with disillusionment. By cutting through the images and concepts and myths presented as corporate and organisational "truths", he presents the real truth to you about organisational structure, its power, and its mythology, in all its nakedness. Then calling on his years of being on the drawing board of organisational design, he offers you the necessary strategies and tactics to cope and succeed. This is a book that will shake and amuse you. With a surgical sense of humour, Heaphey cuts into the concepts that we take for granted as being "truths". You will smile, perhaps even laugh, when he presents you with the realities you never saw previously. It is the ultimate book about organisational power and structure, how to deal with it and how to hook into it, by an individual who consulted on structure for some of the largest organisations in the world.
