Fashion and Utopia in Management Thinking

£55.00

Product description

Very good like new condition with little to no wear. Internally clean and bright.

Are the disseminators of management fashion undermining the professional dedication of managers? Is the practitioner's desire to follow management fashion merely derisory? Or is there some positive value to be gained from management fashion? Here, the author suggests that fashion can be an important weapon in the struggle against the utopian tendencies that pervade management thinking. He argues that the disseminators of management fashion might help us to resist the kind of moral fanaticism which he thinks is troubling in more rationalist or utopian appreciation of what is happening organizations.
