Synopsis

Managing Value-Based Organizations argues that those who fail to understand management history are destined to repeat it. Research has shown that despite the prodigious output of management books, managers still have little idea why there is so much change in the world of work or what they can do about it. Most, it seems, are still waiting for the dust to settle, expecting instead that in the near future they will be able to go back to doing things the way they have always done them.



This highly innovative and accessible book takes a historical look at how the organization and management of work has changed since before the Industrial Revolution and uses this as a basis to explain:



* how and why organizations and management behavior have evolved over the past 500 years

* the importance of understanding how organizations are changing today and what they will become in the future

* what new organizations will look like and how managers will have to change to be effective in them, and

* how managers can change their organization from one which is locked in tradition to one which is flexible enough to respond positively to constant change.



Revealing both the practicalities and theories behind surviving upheaval in the workplace, academics, business managers and HR managers alike will find this book to be a fascinating and invaluable read.
