The Book of Dangerous Words in Management
Disruption? New Work? Agility?
Executives are supposed to be charismatic and visionary while staff are expected to be motivated and enthusiastic. Such talk comes easily – and indeed incessantly – to managers. But how much to these all-too-familiar clichés really have to tell us? Fredmund Malik reveals the muddled thinking underlying large parts of the vocabulary of management. His new book cuts through the babble and makes a stand for clear thinking and straight talking.
»Not only skeptics will find Malik a pleasure to read. He is skilled at picking apart the fashionable verbiage of management with often sarcastic glee.« Süddeutsche Zeitung (Munich)
