The End of Management Alchemy: Some Fun with the Findings of Elliott Jaques and How Requisite Organization Began By Darwin Mott

Currently, the management of our employment systems is stuck in an alchemy-to-science transitional and nonsensical state (like the image on the front cover). Alchemy is evident in the management fads that keep coming back around with different names, like unicorns on a carousel. This book puts an end to all that. And it’s about time! And it is actually “Time” - the Time Span that a Real Boss states as needed and accurate for a subordinate role (or employee) to perform a Real Task, for example – that turns out to be the great liberator. So you can forget about all the passing fads. Let this primer start you on a 10-step journey to a happy and productive hierarchy, with a healthier bottom line.< Less
