orgBy Ray Fisman, Tim Sullivan | Hachette, 2014

THE ORG, Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan explain the tradeoffs that every organization faces, arguing that this everyday dysfunction is actually inherent to the very nature of orgs. THE ORG diagnoses the root causes of that malfunction, beginning with the economic logic of why organizations exist in the first place, then working its way up through the org’s structure from the lowly cubicle to the CEO’s office.

Woven throughout with fascinating case studies-including McDonald’s, al Qaeda, the Baltimore City Police Department, Procter and Gamble, the island nation of Samoa, and Google – THE ORG reveals why the give-and-take nature of organizations, while infuriating, nonetheless provides the best way to get the job done.
