Counter Regarded as one of the most influential management books of all time, Organizational Culture and Leadership tranforms the abstract concept of culture into a tool that managers and students can continually use to better shape the dynamics of organization and change. Focusing on today's business realities, Schein draws on a wide range of comtemporary research to redefine culture and demonstrate the crucial role leaders play in successfully applying the principles of culture to achieve their organizational goals. He tackles the_complex question of how an existing culture can be changed - one of the toughest challenges of leadership. The result is a vital aid to understanding and practicing organizational effectiveness.
