Managing in Changing Times PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Managing in Changing Times free pdf This topical book challenges the hegemony of neoclassical scientific management approach, exploring new potentials for the development of the understanding of management and organization in the post-scientific era of globalization. It brings together distinguished writers from diverse fields to offer specialized perspectives on 'new ideas'. This is particularly relevant in view of the fragmenting management theory in the face of the shift of the centre of political and economic power to Asia and the increasing financial resurgence in the West. "Managing in Changing Times: A Guide to the Perplexed Manager" provides managers with alternatives to conventional approaches to management. It highlights that there are no easy, quick-fix, off the shelf solutions to complex problems. Solutions require thinking and action with multiple perspectives and considerable effort. This imparts the book a global appeal as it speaks to every manager and is not boundary-specific. The initial chapters explore the potentials of the ideas of Schumacher and Capra in understanding the global management era. The book will be invaluable to students of management, managers and management pundits.
