Tompkins (University of Montana) takes a performance-oriented approach to the study of organization theory, making connections among organization theory, management practice, and organizational performance. After beginning chapters on the context of public management and management practice and organizational performance, he examines particular schools of thought, from Max Weber's theory of bureaucracy to quality management, and explores the implications of each school for management practice and organizational performance.
