SUMMARY OF ORGANIZATIONAL THEORIES

A Summary of Organizational Theories as Presented by
Shafritz, Ott, & Jang
IMPORTANT / DISCLAIMER: Nearly all of the material contained in this summary guide was extracted from Classics in Organizational Theory, the great textbook by Shafritz, Ott, & Jang (2011). I compiled this page-by-page summary for my own study and reference, but I’ve found it useful to pass on to others to share thoughts and ideas. This guide is not a substitute for their work – in other words, if you are interested in the material included in this summary guide, then navigate over to bn.com or even better, your favorite local bookstore and buy the book. The book is much far more interesting. Additionally, not everything here is cited correctly and thoroughly (ERRORS LIKELY EXIST!). Again, this summary was for my own purposes, not an academic submission, so I have not double-checked the material for accuracy. DO NOT COPY without first checking the book! Failure to so will result in plagiarism, and possibly error filled plagiarism at that. I take no responsibility in others copying or referencing this guide. Use at your own risk!

NEARLY ALL the included information was extracted from:
Shafritz, J. M., Ott, S. J., & Jang, Y. S. (2011). Classics of Organizational Theory (7th ed.). Belmont, Calif.: Wadsworth.
