McKinlay, Alan and Taylor, Philip (2014) Foucault, Governmentality, and Organization : Inside the Factory of the Future. Routledge Advances in Management and Business Studies. ISBN 0415749050Full text not available in this repository.
This book traces how abstract managerial ideas about maximizing production flexibility and employee freedom were translated into concrete, day-to-day practices at the Motorola plant in East Kilbride, UK. Using eyewitness accounts, the book describes how employees dealt with the increased freedom Motorola promoted amongst its employees, how employees adapted to managerial changes, specifically the elimination of large-scale management, and where the ‘managerless’ system came under strain. This book will be of essential reading for researchers, graduate students, and undergraduates interested in the areas of management studies, human resource management, and organizational studies, among others.
