Summary

Baker and Paulson present a collection of thirty experiential exercises that are designed to help illustrate and internalize key concepts in organization theory. The exercises vary in length and complexity--some may serve as class 'warm-ups' while others could occupy an entire course period. Activities vary in range from personal inventories to actual creative production activities and occasionally require fieldwork. The exercises have all been class-tested and are adapted from a wide array of sources to ensure a variety of activities that will engage students regardless of their background.
