Brunsson, Nils

Hypocrisy - the practice of incorporating different organizational structures, processes and ideologies for internal and external use - is an important feature of viable organizations in modern societies. It is an effective way of achieving organizational legitimacy in a world where organizations are exposed to an increasing number of inconsistent and conflicting norms and demands. This book suggests that legitimacy is secured by conflict rather than by unity, and by dealing with problems rather than by providing solutions.
