Effective management depends on understanding how organisations work, and on manipulating the forces that shape their performance. Globalisation and profound transformations of culture today jointly challenge managers in business and public administration to find new approaches to organising. Dr Geoffrey MacKechnie(1936-2003) taught organisation theory for over thirty years in Trinity College, Dublin and in the Irish Management Institute.

Many of Ireland's senior managers in both the private and public sectors have acknowledged his influence and paid tribute to his unique ability to put ideas to work in explaining the world of organising. In this collection of essays published in his honour, colleagues and former students examine key issues in strategy, structure, and culture to illuminate problems faced by all managers in the twenty-first century.

The collection includes Geoffrey MacKechnie's seminal discussion of the dynamics shaping organisational form and how structure crucially affects performance.
