Lowest used price: $4.55
List price: $73.50
Author: William H. Dettmer
Brand: Brand: ASQ Quality Press

An interpretation of Elkiyahu M. Goldratt's Theory of Constraints (TOC), a system improvement philosophy focusing on logic and identifying the weakest link in an organization in order to, as the author states, "manage the living daylights" out of it. Dettmer introduces TOC, defining the concepts of categories of legitimate reservation and TOC thinking processes while illustrating current, future, transition, and prerequisite trees depicting the system. In addition to a perusal of these basic concepts in the management theory, the author outlines applications in conflict resolution and group dynamics. Includes flow charts.

Organizational Assessment: A Step by Step Guide to Effective Consulting

Organizational Assessment: A Step by Step Guide to Effective Consulting Lowest new price: $111.89
Lowest used price: $43.21
List price: $39.95
Author: Harry Levinson
Brand: Brand: American Psychological Association

A comprehensive, step-by-step guide to assessing the health of an organization. Drawing on his experience, Harry Levinson shows consultants and business owners what symptoms of the ailing organization to look for and how to analyze the resulting data. Using an "open systems" approach to diagnosis, Levinson teaches his readers how to apply this technique to the problems of any malfunctioning organization - be it a business, hospital, school or church. In the process, he seeks to communicate not only the basics of his craft, but also the challenges, rewards and subtleties of it. The volume is an updated and distilled version of the author's "Organizational Diagnosis". It covers getting started and drawing up an agreement with an organization, as well as data gathering, classification, interpretation and presentation. A case summary provides a real-life example of the author's approach in practice. The work also presents a complete outline of the assessment process, which consultants can refer to. Appendices include a sample final report and other material that should help the reader use the outline more effectively.

Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Human Behavior (Perspectives in Social Psychology)

Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Human Behavior (Perspectives in Social Psychology) Lowest new price: $125.63
Lowest used price: $34.99
List price: $199.99
Author: Edward L. Deci
Brand: Edward L Deci

Early in this century, most empirically oriented psychologists believed that all motivation was based in the physiology of a set of non-nervous­ system tissue needs. The theories of that era reflected this belief and used it in an attempt to explain an increasing number of phenomena. It was not until the 1950s that it became irrefutably clear that much of human motivation is based not in these drives, but rather in a set of innate psychological needs. Their physiological basis is less understood; and as concepts, these needs lend themselves more easily to psycho­ logical than to physiological theorizing. The convergence of evidence from a variety of scholarly efforts suggests that there are three such needs: self-determination, competence, and interpersonal relatedness. This book is primarily about self-determination and competence (with particular emphasis on the former), and about the processes and structures that relate to these needs. The need for interpersonal relat­ edness, while no less important, remains to be explored, and the findings from those explorations will need to be integrated with the present theory to develop a broad, organismic theory of human motivation. Thus far, we have articulated self-determination theory, which is offered as a working theory-a theory in the making. To stimulate the research that will allow it to evolve further, we have stated self-determination theory in the form of minitheories that relate to more circumscribed domains, and we have developed paradigms for testing predictions from the various minitheories.

The Cult of Personality Testing: How Personality Tests Are Leading Us to Miseducate Our Children, Mismanage Our Companies, and Misunderstand Ourselves

The Cult of Personality Testing: How Personality Tests Are Leading Us to Miseducate Our Children, Mismanage Our Companies, and Misunderstand Ourselves Lowest new price: $8.80
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $19.99
Author: Annie Murphy Paul
Brand: Brand: Free Press

Award-winning psychology writer Annie Paul delivers a scathing exposé on the history and effects of personality tests.

Millions of people worldwide take personality tests each year to direct their education, to decide on a career, to determine if they'll be hired, to join the armed forces, and to settle legal disputes. Yet, according to award-winning psychology writer Annie Murphy Paul, the sheer number of tests administered obscures a simple fact: they don't work. Most personality tests are seriously flawed, and sometimes unequivocally wrong. They fail the field's own standards of validity and reliability. They ask intrusive questions. They produce descriptions of people that are nothing like human beings as they actually are: complicated, contradictory, changeable across time and place. The Cult Of Personality Testing documents, for the first time, the disturbing consequences of these tests. Children are being labeled in limiting ways. Businesses and the government are wasting hundreds of millions of dollars every year, only to make ill-informed decisions about hiring and firing. Job seekers are having their privacy invaded and their rights trampled, and our judicial system is being undermined by faulty evidence. Paul's eye-opening chronicle reveals the fascinating history behind a lucrative and largely unregulated business. Captivating, insightful, and sometimes shocking, The Cult Of Personality Testing offers an exhilarating trip into the human mind and heart.

Danger in the Comfort Zone: From Boardroom to Mailroom -- How to Break the Entitlement Habit That's Killing American Business

Danger in the Comfort Zone: From Boardroom to Mailroom -- How to Break the Entitlement Habit That's Killing American Business Lowest new price: $8.59
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $17.95
Author: Judith M. BARDWICK

"Since the original publication of this important and controversial book, it has stirred up business thinkers everywhere. Now this landmark work has been updated and expanded -- with five all-new chapters -- to meet today's continuing challenges to the nation's productivity and morale. Danger in the Comfort Zone examines the phenomenon of the ""entitlement"" mentality in the American workforce -- people's preoccupation with their rewards rather than their responsibilities. Bardwick describes three basic mindsets and shows the effect of each on individuals and their organizations: * Entitlement -- people feel entitled to rewards and lethargic about having to earn them; motivation and job satisfaction are low * Fear -- people are paralyzed; the threat of layoffs makes them focus on protecting their jobs rather than doing them well * Earning -- people are energized by challenge; they know their accomplishments will be noticed -- and rewarded In this paperback edition, Bardwick points out that although the ""fear"" element has undoubtedly grown in the last few years, the entitlement attitude is still firmly entrenched at all levels. She offers additional chapters with new, specific techniques for pulling people out of the quagmire of fear and complacency, and igniting them with the energy of true earning."
