Book Publisher : SAGE
Total Pages : 579

Book Summary :

This ground breaking compendium of globally renowned thinkers systematically explores the characteristics of understanding, applying, and developing organizational and managerial wisdom. Wisdom is among the most complex and profound concepts in our vernacular. It represents the epitome of human development and conduct, characterizing the most enlightened and successful people and collectives. Yet its systematic analyses and application to professional pursuits has been extremely elusive. This is particularly true with regard to the domain or organization management, as evidenced by preoccupations with information and knowledge as well as business headlines replete with tales of poor judgment and questionable morality. The Handbook of Organizational Wisdom integrates the insights of some of the field's most respected thinkers to further our understanding of its essential characteristics, consider how it might be practically applied, and explore how it might be developed.
