The Book of Dangerous Words in Management
Publisher: Campus Verlag
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)
