Understanding Culture and Leadership  March 24, 2011

This book is very informative when it relates to organizational, group, and individual culture and leadership. Schein takes you through the chapters in a sequence that not only informs you about the topics but explains to you solutions to having the ability to be able to be flexible in managing change in different cultures

Organizational Culture and Leadership: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Regarded as one of the most influential management books of all time, this fourth edition of Leadership and Organizational Culture transforms the abstract concept of culture into a tool that can be used to better shape the dynamics of organization and change.

This updated edition focuses on today's business realities. Edgar Schein draws on a wide range of contemporary research to redefine culture and demonstrate the crucial role leaders play in successfully applying the principles of culture to achieve their organizational goals.

"Worth reading again and again and again." -Booklist

“An organizational development pioneer uses an anthropological approach to address a leader’s role in shaping group and organizational dynamics.” -Knowledge Management

Schein is, to use an overworked word, a guru, the recognized expert in the field.” -Inside Busin
