This successful organizational theory text, newly revised and now in its third edition, examines classic and new organizational theories that address management issues of organizational structure, culture, decisionmaking, ethics motivation, leadership, and organizational change. For the first time, an organizational theory text addresses how organizational theories relate to both government and nonprofits, whether small or large organizations, from large civil service agencies and international nonprofits, to independent government authorities and districts, to small town governments and local nonprofits serving one group or community. The text considers how theory can be applied in these differing contexts of citizen, customer, and client demands.
