Price: $6.55
The book is a collection of short articles by members of a business research group at the University of Wollongong, Australia. We call the group THEORI, which is an acronym of Transforming Human Enterprise: Organization, Responsibility and Innovation. With a collection of short chapters, we aim to create a straight forward guide for researchers and practitioners on a range of theories used in the fields of management and organization studies from what members of THEORI have learnt over many years of high quality research. The chapters are written and presented in a way that that we hope will appeal to anyone who is interested in organisational studies and management practice.. We hope this book will inspire both researchers and practitioners as they seek to generate and mobilise the knowledge that assists responsible innovation and adaptation to the ever-changing circumstances of the modern world.

    Dipping into the chapters in this accessible and stimulating little book I gained new insights into the world of management theories as well as how the THEORI researchers use theory as a framework for investigating, elucidating and transforming aspects of our everyday world. The variety of settings and theories explored by the contributors offers a thought-provoking suite of contexts and situations. It is not often that a single tome offers opportunities to think about widely varying fields of human endeavour such as family firms, the Australian film industry, under-utilisation of skilled immigrants, the isolation of senior citizens, sustainable marketing practice, knowledge complexity and stickiness to name a few. Theory and the perspectives of the THEORI researchers encourage us to look more deeply at the world around us. This book builds bridges between theory and practice. As I read 'Being Practical with Theory' it became clear that ‘theory’ is no longer ‘systems of rules or... More > principles’ but ‘ways of viewing and contemplating’ and perhaps transforming the activities in which we engage.< Less
