No discussion of metaphors in business would be complete without mention of Gareth Morganís book: "Images of Organisation" (first published in 1986). Morgan, Professor of organizational behavior and industrial relations at the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto studies organizations via a number of metaphors, describing the organization as:
  1. Machines
  2. Organisms
  3. Brains
  4. Cultures
  5. Political systems
  6. Psychic prisons
  7. Flux and transformation
  8. Domineering entities
