Nhan đề: Life on the line in contemporary manufacturing : the workplace experience of lean production and the "Japanese" model / Rick Delbridge Số phân loại : 306.30952 R302; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 232 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Much is stated and written about the new world of work, but how much do we know about the contemporary workplace? What influence have Japanese management techniques had on the way work is organized? Have the systems and mechanisms of control changed radically in recent years, or are they much the same as they have always been? Rick Delbridge sought an answer to these questions at first hand by working on the shop floor in a Japanese consumer electronics transplant and a European automotive components supplier in order to witness and experience life on the line in contemporary manufacturing. Not only does his book offer rich empirical data on the lived reality of work and a management practice that may share little in common with that found in the textbooks; he also raises a number of important issues about the best ways to understand the complex and changing nature of work .

Nhan đề: nging times : work and leisure in postindustrial society / Jonathan Gershuny Số phân loại : 306.36 J430; Đặc điểm vật lý: 304 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : If we can measure how the members of a society spend their time, we have the elements of a certain sort of account of how that society works. This is what Jonathan Gershuny provides in Changing Times, using 120,000 survey-diary accounts of daily life in twenty countries from the 1960s on to construct an account of how time-use patterns have changed in the developed world over the last third of a century and to relate these changes to economic development. His analysis of the data and of existing theoretical approaches highlights, and goes some way to addressing, problems in the standard National Accounting classifications of work and will become the foundation of a new approach to the economics and sociology of time .

*Tóm tắt : The book identifies central questions about working experience and answers them in a direct and lively manner. It has a strong analytical foundation based on a political economy framework, giving particular weight to the contradictory character of organizations. Here contradictions turn on the competing demands placed on organizations and the different political projects of groups within them. This perspective integrates the chapters and permits numerous scholarly debates to be addressed - including those on identity projects, gender and work, power and participation, escalation in decision-making, and the meaning of corporate social responsibility. This book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate classes in Organizational Behavior, Business Strategy and the Sociology of Work and Employment .
