Summary
  • "This volume brings together the best-known and most influential articles on sensemaking by one of its most distinguished exponents, Karl Weick." "Weick explores the process of how organizations discover that they face important decisions. Often organizations have discussions in order to see what they think, or act in order to see what they want - before they are even aware that a decision has to be made. The effective organization is one that understands this process of sensemaking and learns to manage it with wisdom. The ways in which people do that are demonstrated in the chapters of this book."--Jacket
