SYMLOG Field Theory: Organizational Consultation, Value Differences, Personality and Social Perception

Synopsis

Formally introduced in 1979, SYMLOG (Systematic Multiple Level Observation of Groups) has been tested and developed in the years since by Robert Bales of Harvard University and a team of collaborators, including the editors of this volume. Here, the Hares provide a current survey of SYMLOG applications in three areas: organizational consultation, research on cultural differences that underlie the problems of managing diversity, and the measure of personality and social perception. With five case studies and several intensive reviews of SYMLOG theory, the present volume is an invaluable tool for both scholars and professional management consultants.
