about

The author argues that power in organizations has negative and counter-productive effects. Instead, he argues for management systems exempt from power, based on self-guidance, and focused on the maximization of each individual's creative and other resources. Managers accordingly need to pay more attention to the development of efficiency, empathy, and imagination. Questionnaires are included to help readers assess themselves on their management approach.
