From the Inside Flap

AN ELEGANT FRAMEWORK FOR MORE EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP

Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has been transforming business leadership for over 40 years. Using a multidisciplinary approach to management, this deceptively simple model offers a powerful set of tools for navigating complexity and turbulence; as the political and economic climate continues to evolve, this model has never been more relevant than today.

The Structural Frame explores the convergence of organizational structure and function, and shows why social architecture must take environment into account. Case studies illustrate successful alignment in diverse organizations, and guidelines provide strategic insight for avoiding common pathologies and achieving the right fit.

The Human Resource Frame dissects the complex dynamics at the intersection of people and organizations. Leadership is the difference between motivation and alienation, and this discussion explores the practices and assumptions to build high-performance organizations.

The Political Frame shows how competition, conflict, and the struggle for power and resources can be either a tool for growth or a toxic landmine for an individual or organization. Case studies show how both constructive and destructive practices influence social, political, and economic trends beyond the boardroom walls.

The Symbolic Frame defines organizational culture, and provides insight on bringing a diverse group of individuals together into a cohesive team. From organizational structures and processes to everyday humor and language, the power of symbol and culture can be leveraged as a tool for achievement.

This new Sixth Edition has been updated with new information on cross-sector collaboration, generational differences, virtual leadership, globalization, cross-culture communication, and more, with an expanded Instructor's Guide that includes summaries, mini-assessments, videos, and extra resources.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing a page and Writing in it.
Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2020
When I Initially got the book, I was thrilled because it looked good compared to previous rentals I have received from other companies. It had a few dings but nothing big. Upon doing my reading throughout the semester using this book I discovered that someone who previously had it wrote in it and that one page was missing (Jump from page 118 to page 121 in photo above). The notes weren't bothersome or long but still there and I don't think I missed the concept of that chapter that the one page was missing out of but would still like to know what I missed. Overall great book in a decent condition.
