Productive Workplaces Revisited: Dignity, Meaning, and Community in the 21st Century

In Productive Workplaces Revisited, Marvin Weisbord takes the next step in exploring effective strategies for improving workplace productivity through dignity, meaning, and community. In this new edition the author revisits the case studies from the first edition, Productive Workplaces, to show the long-term effects of OD interventions–twenty-plus years after the fact and provides invaluable insights for practitioners and students alike.

In five new chapters, Weisbord reinterprets his systems work in health care and steel-making, describes how future search – his method for "getting everybody improving whole systems," has crossed cultures on five continents, and summarizes his learning from following up cases decades later. This edition also presents in-depth case studies of organizations that have used these techniques to increase output, cut costs, create strategic plans, manage conflict between functions, and more.
