Handbook of Organizational and Managerial Innovation Summary

Handbook of Organizational and Managerial Innovation by Tyrone S. Pitsis

The Handbook of Organizational and Managerial Innovation places humans, their acts, practices, processes and fantasies at the core of innovation. Bringing together some of the world's leading thinkers, academics and professionals, both established and emerging, this multidisciplinary book provides a comprehensive picture of the vibrant and engaging field of organizational and managerial innovation.

The contributors present organizational and managerial innovation as a complex concept underpinned by varied ontological and epistemological traditions and disciplines. They reveal that it is something that exists and occurs at multiple levels of analysis, and from multiple zones of experience - the experience of managers, workers, psychologists, philosophers and economists.

This innovative and engaging book will be an essential resource for researchers, practitioners and students alike with an interest in the role of innovation in organizations.
