Managerial Relations

  • Rosemary Stewart


This is an unusual subject to find in a book on organization. Ignorance was one reason for this omission in the past. Until recently it would have been very difficult to write a descriptive, as distinct from a purely speculative, chapter on managerial relations, as there was so little information about them. Now research has contributed to a better understanding of them, but there is still much that we do not know. Ignorance also led us to underrate the importance of managerial relations to the understanding of how organizations work.
