Overview

New visions for the new millenium.

The world we work in is developing at an exponential rate — a rate that shows no sign of abating in the 21st century. It is only natural that we have a curiosity about how workplace institutions and management practices will change in these changing times.

All of us who work in organizations constantly seek answers to questions about the future of leadership practice, the future of business processes, and the future of organizational structures. This book provides wholly original, never-before-published ideas and concepts from the world's leading management thinkers on what organizations and management will look like in the 21st century. Finally, today's thought leaders offer their new visions for the new millenium.

Find out how Janusian vision, creative destruction, dualism, and collective genius inform 21C leadership. Discover what part social legitimacy, volatility and diversity, and the dance of change play in our 21C management processes. Read about what the customized workplace, the creative web, and kaleidoscope thinking mean for the 21C organization.

Someday we'll all manage this way.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chowdhury, vice president of the American Supplier Institute and coauthor of the well-received QS-9000 Pioneers: Registered Companies Share Their Strategies for Success, has compiled the views of 27 global thinkers from business and academia on management in the 21st century. In three parts, "Leadership," "Processes," and "Organization," they examine in detail a plethora of issues confronting the 21st-century leader and manager. Rosabeth Moss Kanter discusses kaleidoscopic thinking, a strength for managers who must focus on many directions in occasionally unfamiliar milieus; Barry Z. Posner and James M. Kouzes examine "Janusian leadership," the ability to look at the past to gain insight into shaping the future. Other issues addressed include the management of talent and the measuring of its return, as well as new organizational structures that accommodate the needs of professionals thriving in a world of information technology. Scholarly but readable and well documented, Chowdhury's book is a worthy addition to academic and large public libraries.--Steven J. Mayover, formerly with Free Lib. of Philadelphia Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

PREFACE:

While the revolution in information technology is bringing us all closer together, globalization is challenging our language skills, and a new generation is reshaping our business strategy. Is business changing or is managing changing? Will the success of manufacturing industry depend upon their embracing IT? Will individuals target employers or will organizations target employers or will organizations target employees? These were some of the questions which inspired me to create Management 21C.

The book you are reading reveals the collective thoughts and visions of some of the world's great minds. It is a truly global pioneering venture. From Australia to America, from France to the Netherlands, Britain to Canada, Sweden to Switzerland, the very best contemporary management thinkers are here at your fingertips. Management 21C brings together visions for the new millennium in one concise book, allowing you to understand the changes happening now and what changes you can expect. The future of business will be different: whose versions are you reading?

With a detailed description of the global emergence and rise of new businesses and cultures, Management 21C will intrigue, provoke, encourage, and, above all, change the attitudes of everyone who reads it. Each chapter is unique and valuable. In chapter 1 I introduce new concepts including Return on Talent (ROT), Fire Prevention, and the Talent Management System.

In the first part, discover the Janusian leader, the dualistic leader, the value-based Edu-leader, sensational leadersip, the power of collective genius, mastery, and mindset. Part two, "21C processes," describesthe actions, skills, and strategies that leaders and managers will need to be able to compete in the future. In the final part, the customized workplace, the creative web, and kaleidoscope thinking inspire you to reconsider the 21C organization and help you prepare for it.

Management 21C is for those who believe in creative war, for those who inspire other people, for those who believe in others and not just themselves, for those who celebrate diversity for those who constantly search for a dream, for those who want to reshape the world of tomorrow. Someday we'll all manage this way.

Management 21C was created by inspiration. Its aim is to inspire others. Management 21C is the ultimate inspiration.
