 About the Book 

Hard hitting and focused in its attack, this warning shot of a book stands out with its message that those companies that refuse to change their basic, long-held operating strategies will not survive in the rapidly changing world of work. TheMoreHard hitting and focused in its attack, this warning shot of a book stands out with its message that those companies that refuse to change their basic, long-held operating strategies will not survive in the rapidly changing world of work. The business hierarchy that seeks to monitor and control workers methods and output is outmoded, the text claims, and must be changed even at the risk of hurting those who have always benefited from hierarchical arrangements: the executives and managers. The book further argues that current managing techniques stifle the ability of people and organizations to grow. With innovation and creativity thus inhibited, the days of a company that will not change are numbered. There is a solution, however, and the chapters offer ways to keep talented employees, serve shareholders, and base business practices in growth rather than efficiency and control. A detailed case study puts a real-life spin on the theories and choices explained within the pages, strongly making the case that only companies willing to reenvision themselves now will have a place in tomorrows business landscape.
