The paper aims to promote skills of managers to gain greater insight into organisations and to frame their problems through the use of several organisational metaphors, which build on the concepts underpinning organisation theory. The paper briefly reviews Morgan’s metaphors and their associated sociological paradigms that are commonly recognised in social theory, and then improves and rephrases questionnaires on the basis of intrinsic and recent theoretical developments of each metaphor.
