Workplace Democratization: Its Internal Dynamics

by Paul Bernstein - £9.99  Paul Bernstein (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780985650803 | ISBN 10: 098565080x

What leads to successful workplace democracy? To answer this question the author examined over 50 cases, covering a century of experience. They ranged from completely worker-owned and controlled companies on the one hand, to partial but significant participation by employees in the management of privately-owned, community-owned, or state-owned firms, on the other. This comparison revealed six components to be absolutely essential if employees are to exercise meaningful power over the long-run in the managing of their companies. This book identifies and describes those essential components in depth, shows the variety of forms they can take when successful, and explains how they must function in order to enable the long-term success of democratic management.

"... a very scholarly and innovative treatment of workplace democratization, and an excellent source of ideas and possibilities for research."
(Prof. George England, Industrial Relations Center, University of Minnesota)
