Writing a Manifesto for Better Management
The litany of institutional, market and leadership failures that precipitated one of the worst economic crises in modern history is staggering. Yet efforts by policy makers and business leaders to improve matters have so far fallen short of what's truly needed, and do little but tinker at the very edges of the economic system. This article makes seven key recommendations to move us toward a more humanistic model of management, placing human values and social relationships back at the core of business. By tackling the deeper malaise troubling modern business management, the authors seek to redefine the current business paradigm, and they propose a stronger model of management that would enable the business world to flourish once again.
