Overview

Around 5,000 business and management titles are published every year, and increasingly, their preferred mode of presentation is centred on the creation and marketing of buzzwords and fads. This book argues that these management fads and buzzwords deflect critical inquiry and limit useful action because they present a 'ready made' view of the world, which rejects the benefits of theoretical analysis and reflection. Topics covered include:

* the 'guru industry'
* 'excellence'
* business process re-engineering
* empowerment
* culture
* knowledge work
* globalization.

'Unpacking' the 'guru industry' and analyzing the fads and buzzwords, this book provides a 'critical-practical' analysis, designed to allow readers to locate, understand and critique management fashion.

    Courtney Love Part 4

    As the night fell, I crept out of the cabin and ran to the stables. I had printed out the directions (I couldn't risk any monsters on my tail). At the stables I grabbed an energy bar and water. I decided I would run. As I got out of camp I saw a limo truck pull up. Vivian and Paige were there waiting. I jogged over, there secret was over. "What are you doing here Courtney?" Vivian hissed. It was too late. The doors opened and someone ushered us inside. Inside was a red carpet, a soda bar, and a flat screen television. Wow. The seats were real leather. Nice. Two girls were already in there. "Hi." They said in unision. Creepy. • Sorry for such a short one this time. I'll try to make it longer next time (next result).
