Chapter 11: Managing labour and the labour process

Bill Harley

Abstract

This chapter reviews the development of labour process theory over time and evaluates its contribution to our understanding of the management of labour. It then provides a brief overview of the treatment of power and politics in mainstream scholarship on management and organisations. Discussion then turns to the employment relationship and how mainstream scholarship has dealt with the management of labour. After that, the remainder of the chapter deals with labour process theory. In the final part of the chapter, the legacy of labour process theory and its possible future are considered.
