Product Description

Communication and Organizational Culture: A Key to Understanding Work Experiences is the first book to provide an introduction to different views on and approaches to the study of organizational culture from a communication perspective. This text introduces the basic elements of organizational culture including artifacts that emerge from the interactions of organizational members. Author Joann Keyton uses a variety of lenses for understanding organizational culture and integrates research findings as practical advice about managing, developing, and changing organizational culture. Throughout, the book focuses on the communication practices and processes associated with organizational culture by drawing heavily on organizational culture research conducted by communication scholars and by illuminating the communicative aspects of organizational culture research conducted by scholars in peripheral disciplines.

Review

"Dr. Keyton's new book, Communication and Organizational Culture: A Key to Understanding Work Experience, is one of the best publications in this field. It successfully depicts organizational culture from a communication perspective and it is a good example of combining academic and practical approaches. The book is written in a clear and concise manner, illustrating concepts and theories with real cases from different types of organizations including universities, multicultural companies and so on. It is a very good textbook for students who want to study organizational culture, because it includes nearly all the important concepts, theories, and findings in the development of organizational culture studies. Furthermore, the book is written in lucid language with many examples, which makes all the abstract concepts and theories very understandable. Additionally, the author created some forms to summarize and compare related knowledge, which can help students learn from a broader perspective. It is an essential guidebook for scholars who will conduct research in organizational culture. It provides a comprehensive literature review in organizational communication and some valuable suggestions for conducting research in this field. This book is also a good index of related important publications in organizational culture research." (Yuping Mao Learning and Practicing Organizational Culture with a Handbook )

"At last, a book for the scholar, practitioner, and layperson alike that explains the ubiquitous experience of culture in organizational life has arrived.  Keyton's writing is clear and concise and accessible to those who may not come to it with a broad knowledge of the communication field, but have an interest in the power of culture and communication in organizational life."

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Informative, but boring. The format would benefit from some charts or graphs or something to break up the pages and pages and pages of text.
