Books and Movies Documenting Complex Organizations?

I like to learn about how complex organizations and projects are run behind-the-scenes -- to see how decisions get made, how responsibilities are divided, what tools and technologies are used, how knowledge is documented and new workers trained.

Recommended books for the super inquisitive grown up?

At some time in the past 4-5 months, someone on AskMe mentioned a book they had received and couldn't put down, something along the lines of David Macaulay's "The Way Things Work" but it was a title geared towards adults.

It's a gift for a compulsive reader who knows a whole bunch about everything, and can't wait to learn still more!
