Lessons from Organizational Studies

The Organizations And Markets Blog has an interesting post on “What Do We Really Know About Organizations?

It seems like our understanding of the nature of organizations is very immature and ripe for interdisciplinary study aka horizontal thinking (e.g combined study of leadership, evolutionary psychology, sociology, anthropology network science, economics). More then half of the organization I have worked in are extremely dysfunctional (lots of waste, inefficiency and wasted human brainpower with high levels of disgruntled employees), so there has to be room for better practices.

Does anybody know of a good book summarizing the state of knowledge and the frontiers of current research in organizational studies? I am more interested in practical applications then pure academic curiosity.
