Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A hot topic in organizational science in recent years has been how organizational members conceptualize and make sense of their organizational worlds. The growing interest in cognition has coincided, not accidentally, with the increasing legitimacy of a constructionist point of view among organizational scholars.

Bringing together the scholars whose work has fueled these theoretical developments, this volume covers broad ground - from cognitive coordination on the bridge of a Navy ship, to cultural belief systems in the California wine industry. Yet each contributor applies the insights of modern cognitive science to problems of sensemaking and decision-making in organizations, creating a coherent volume and marking the contributions as the cutting edge of cognitive research within and between organizations.
