Book Description

January 4, 1990 0195057201 978-0195057201
High technology--which accounts for a rapidly growing section of the global workforce--presents a different set of management problems than have usually been encountered by traditional industry. In this book, Von Glinow, Mohrman, and their expert contributors discuss the reasons for this difference and define new organizational forms for global high technology management. Propounding a revolutionary approach to high technology management issues, they explore management teams, high velocity environments, and high technology marketing, as well as human resource considerations, including team interdependence, compensation, and culture clash.

Editorial Reviews

Review


"An excellent collection of essays providing an empirical study of high-technology organizations....The essays are clearly written, up-to-date, and well documented....The book provides clear discussion of a topic of importance to US competitiveness and is thus recommended for lower-division as well as upper-division and graduate collections."--Choice


"Both the importance of the topic and the caliber of the contributions to this book are quite high. Technology clearly plays an increasingly important role in management and organization, and we still have much to learn about how to manage organizations for which technology is a driving force."--James W. Dean, Jr., Pennsylvania State University


"Managing Complexity in High Technology Organizations contains a set of thoughtful and valuable essays about the management of "high tech" companies....The essays are written so as to be accessible and useful both to indivduals with only a cursory exposure to the research on high technology organizations and to individuals well versed in recent ideas and perspectives."--Journal of Management
