Quick Reference

A thesis about recent change in workplace relations developed by industrial sociologist, Paul Edwards, which is based on two core propositions. The first is that there has been an intensification of work and a tightening of disciplinary standards associated with the introduction of Total Quality Management, lean production, and other new forms of work organization. The second, and counter-intuitive, proposition is that many workers view this change positively and welcome a work environment that is better managed and more challenging.
