Summary

Changing demographics are forcing organizations in the United States to address cultural issues. Addressing Cultural Issues in Organizations analyzes how unexamined cultural patterns influence an organization’s culture. Organized into three sections, this volume was written by a panel of experts with extensive research and publication histories in psychology, education, and organizational consulting. How organizational leaders shape and influence the agenda surrounding culture and how culture matters in the country’s organizational life is explored, as well as institutional and organizational issues in corporate, educational, mental health, and service organizations. Various organizational intervention strategies and approaches are also discussed. This book provides groundbreaking conceptual models as well as ideas about how to build practical approaches to organizational interventions.
