About this book


Managerial and Organisational Integration discusses a wide range of issues considered pertinent to the more effective use of technology. A closer involvement between management and workforce can reduce tensions, improve the flow of information (both upward and downward), overcome bottlenecks in existing systems, and bring the capability of many minds to bear upon a problem or challenge. Chapters 1 and 2 introduce the concept of "internal and external integration" and present ideas for effecting a wider amalgamation. Chapters 3 through 6 focus on the way new technologies can encourage fuller integration. Chapters 7 and 8 focus on the results of a national survey and examine the anatomy and intention of case studies. Chapter 9 offers the author's conclusion and forecast for the challenge ahead in this field. The rapid advances in new technology and the recognition of human resources as an important issue for all managers, training professionals and sociologists, will ensure a wide range of readership interest in this book.
