By Jo Owen

Modern management is dying under the weight of its own contradictions. The old order is giving way to a new world disorder. The revolution is happening before our eyes. So what now? Jo Owen has penned a guide to the dazzling and dangerous new world – The Death of Modern Management: How to Lead in the New World Disorder.

In it he explains how the easy certainties of the past are over. Modern management’s simplistic formulas have led to self-defeating conformity. We follow the latest fad but nothing improves. Although technology promises freedom it actually delivers slavery.

Managers need to manage, not just consult grids. Leaders need to make things happen fast. The Death of Modern Management shows readers how to turn risk into opportunity and succeed where others struggle.
