About this item
Modern management theory has been established on the ashes of taylorism, emphasizing control over accountability, conformity over uniqueness, and constraint over freedom. Leadership and management theories and practical approaches of this age of society can be understood as an ongoing struggle to overcome the boundaries of such a conception of organizations and society. Also latter movements, like empowerment or the competence based waves of change have left what we do in organizations largely unscathed. Organizations today are often bereft of a strong leadership function and the result is a decline in overall engagement. In Freedom Mangement: How Leaders Can Stay Afloat in the Sea of Social Connections, Luca Solari contends that this is because the change ahead requires a complete reshuffling of our conceptions of what it means to run an organization, and this will not come without pain for those in charge of managing, who are unable to shift their roles. It comes as no surprise that the complex pattern of preexisting interests is acting like a powerful shield against this change within government, society, and business organizations alike. This book provides an essential argument as to why contemporary organisations need to change and offers a practical guide into how you can keep over the wave, while helping your organisation to thrive in the new age of management.
