Summary
  • Three main types of thought and action characterize most business, industrial, governmental, and quasi-official organizations: a standardizing and quantifying mindset, the doctrine of utilitarianism, and a desire to control and coerce. Real troubles arise when management, with or without the help of organizational development consultants, tries to reshape the organization without considering the outlook of wage earners, hired hands, and employees. Consultants often share the management mindset, and may add to organizational dissonance. Uncritical application of borrowed techniques is another problem among organizational consultants. Examples of borrowed techniques are: use of team-building and small, leaderless groups; the job satisfaction or employee attitude survey; and certain management styles or typologies such as the Jane Mouton Grid and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
