Books to Read (Managing Organizations) January 29, 2005

Posted by dhar in Misc.

Here are some excellent books on Managing Organizations that were recommended by Prof. Paul Ingram. As always quite a few of them are good for laymen and no not require you to do an MBA to appreciate the concepts they talk about.

Warning: The last two, according to Prof. Ingram, are slightly dry academic tomes. Caveat Emptor!

  • Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes And How To Correct Them [Gary Belsky, Thomas Gilovich]
  • The Winner’s Curse [Richard Thaler]
  • Competing by Design [Nadler and Tushman]
  • The Visible Hand [Alfred Chandler]
  • Tree: A Life Story [David Suzuki]
  • No Gods No Masters [Daniel Guerin]
  • Filling the Glass : The Skeptic’s Guide to Positive Thinking in Business [Barry Maher]
  • How we know what isn’t so [Tom Gilovich]
  • Organizations in Action [James Thompson]
  • Organization and Environment [Lawrence and Lorsch]

Hi Sumit,

I am eagerly looking forward for the “Recommended Readings” on Accounting and Finance. Hope it will be soon up. I have posted a trackback to the collection in my blog
