AUTHOR

Guillen, Mauro F.

SUMMARY

In this book, Mauro F. Guill 9n explores differing historical patterns in the adoption of the three major models of organizational management: scientific management, human relations, and structural analysis. Moving beyond Reinhard Bendix's classic "Work and Authority, "Models of Management takes a fresh look at how managers have used these models in four countries during the twentieth century. Guill 9n's study of two liberal-democratic societies (the United States and Great Britain) and two corporatist societies (Germany and Spain) reveals significant differences in the way managerial elites and firms have adopted the three models. His data show that ideas themselves--independent of material interests and technology--can cause organizational change. Throughout the book, contrasts between modernist-technocratic and liberal-humanist mentalities, as well as between Protestant and Catholic religious backgrounds, emerge as decisive factors in determining managerial ideology andpractice. In addition to analyzing management methods in organizations, Guill 9n explores larger issues: the interaction among managerial, government, and labor elites; the impact of the state and the professions on managerial behavior; and the role that managers play in modern societies.Guillen, Mauro F. is the author of 'Models of Management Work, Authority, and Organization in a Comparative Perspective' with ISBN 9780226310367 and ISBN 0226310361.
