Neo-Industrial Organising explores an emerging area of importance in management and organisation studies, namely the trend towards a projectization of the economy as a whole and the inter- and intra-organisational relations of renewal projects. By reporting on the experiences of twenty-five renewal projects from a wide variety of both local and international organisations, the authors develop a theoretical framework based on action and knowledge, in order to answer such key questions as: What is neo-industrial management? What does the future hold for organisations? How will institutions be formed? What effects will neo-industrial organising have on the individual and his/her work situation? Topics covered include:
* industrial renewal, organisation and management
* project management and temporary organisation
* personnel recruitment, selection and training
* societal infrastructure
Distinctive, relevant and accessibly written, this book will interest researchers and students in the field of organisational behaviour.
