Tools and Techniques of Leadership and Management: Meeting the Challenge of Complexity
Foyalty 121

Tools and Techniques of Leadership and Management: Meeting the Challenge of Complexity (Paperback)

£39.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Many of today's books on the tools and techniques of leadership and management provide descriptions of long lists for use in decision-making, leading, coaching and project management. This book takes a completely different approach. It contests the claims that the tools and techniques are based on evidence and explains why human activities of leading and managing are simply not amenable to scientific proof and consequently, why long-term futures of organizations are unpredictable.





The book undertakes a critical exploration of just what these tools and techniques are about; showing that while they may lead to competent performance they cannot go further to expert performance because expertise involves going beyond rules and procedures. Ralph Stacey investigates the many questions that are thrown up as a result of this new approach. Questions such as:









How do we apply this new way of thinking?

What are the practical tools and techniques it gives us?

What is the role of leaders in an unpredictable world?

How does complexity affect the way organizations are structured and function?





This book will be relevant to students on courses and modules that deal with leadership, decision-making and organizational development and behaviour as well as professional leaders and managers who want to develop their own understanding and techniques.

Ralph Stacey is Professor of Management and founding member of, and currently supervisor on, an innovative Master and Doctoral programme in complexity, leadership and organizational change at the Business School of the University of Hertfordshire in the UK. He is also a member of the Institute of Group Analysis. Ralph has published numerous titles, many of them with Routledge, and is co-editor of Routledge's series on Complexity as the Experience of Organizing
