The Future of Management

February 28, 2008

An anti-text book; almost anti-management. If you are into Web 2.0, perhaps you should read this book. If you want to run an airline safely or make reliable cars, just remember that the old ideas about management still have some traction.

Who is it for? Practising managers and those considering a career in management who have a long flight ahead of them.

Presentation: Good.

Would you recommend it? It depends on the available choice of in-flight films.
