Item description for Good Novels, Better Management: Reading Organizational Realities in Fiction by Czarniawska-Joe...
Fiction overcomes the drawbacks of organizational theory and economics; it combines the subjective and the objective, the fate of individuals with that of institutions, and the micro events with the macro systems. Many parts of Europe are now in danger of splitting into societies that draw energy from dark sources obscured by a century of rationalist ideology. It is on this subject that the novels discussed in this book, by authors as diverse as Zola, Conrad, Musil and Strindberg, make their greatest contribution. They describe the provenance and impact of modernity. Essays published in this volume relate novels to economics, business administration and public management. They range across different cultures and historical periods, focusing mainly on the realist novel. At the same time they aim to convince the reader that many kinds of fictional literature might be of help in understanding the complexity of today's organizations.
