With the growing incidence of art-related interventions in management training and organizational practice, this book addresses the perennial but relatively unexplored question: management-science or management-art? Through a series of philosophical reflections on art, management and art-related management practice, this book provides the reader with a unique and logical argument for one answer to this question. Thinking the Art of Management contributes the possibilities of paradigmatic thesis of management practice as an art form, specifically one of management pointillism. This text goes beyond the mere extension of aesthetic understanding to management and organization study. It provides a rich source of abstract concepts and theories to bring new, interesting and critical insight to an understanding of sensible management practice. By broadening the possibilities of current theory and knowledge, it will offer advanced management scholars and thinkers new insights for the constructive application of knowledge.
