Kunda uses detailed descriptions of everyday interactions and rituals in which the culture is brought to life, excerpts from in-depth interviews and a wide variety of corporate texts to vividly portray managerial attempts to ...

An organization structure is a mainly hierarchical concept of subordination of entities that collaborate and contribute to serve one common aim. Organizations are a variant of clustered entities.

The structure of an organization will determine the modes in which it operates and performs. Organizational structure allows the expressed allocation of responsibilities for different functions and processes to different entities such as the branch, department, workgroup and individual.

Politics, Popular Culture, Poststructuralism: Fandom as Public Sex
In one of the many sidebars in his 2006 book Convergence Culture , Henry Jenkins notes that an “analogy to Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence lies close to the surface” when discussing the efforts of game companies to encourage their fans to produce content (Jenkins, 2006, p. 165). But earlier in the text, there’s another analogy that seems quite fruitful to pursue. In the pre-Internet days of fandom, he says: Corporations might now, abstractly, that such transactions [trading around of unauthorized songs and stories] were occurring all around them, every day, but they didn’t know, concretely, who was ... market research, surveys and trends

Journolist flap shows conservative media conspiracy, not liberal one
That's the real story behind the Journolist flap, no matter what you've read to the contrary on news sites, reputable or otherwise. Consider today's lead story on the Daily Caller, the conservative site that's led the charge on the J-list "scandal." The story "exposes" a J-List thread in which the topic of some kind of journalistic coordination came up. It has this huge headline: Journolist debates making its coordination with Obama explicit But way down in the 13th paragaraph , the story quotes a post from the very same thread in which J-List founder and Post blogger Ezra Klein ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What do you make of Spiral Dynamics?
Instead, it’s a theory of how people frame the reality they experience—how people see their worlds, why they choose to do what they do from a set of distinct ‘logics’ and what others can do because of that diversity of systems. Spiral Dynamics seeks compassion and integration without dismissing differentiation. From everything that’s on the website, this would seem to sum up the intent of what Spiral Dynamics is. The manager of the department that I recently started to work for uses Spiral Dynamics, in conjunction with Strengths Finder, in order to gain an understanding of his staff and how to get the ...
