What will it be like to be a manager or a business leader in 2010? This is the key question answered in Managing in the Next Millenium, a unique collection of candid, first-hand insights, based on exclusive interviews with the world's top management commentators, thinkers and doers.
Here are just some of the issues Mike Johnson investigates:
• Organizations: will they be flatter, outsourced and dominated by super managers? which management functions will survive?
• Individual careers: will we have to learn to develop and market ourselves in a new employment world of short term contracts? will head-hunters manage our career protfolio like agents?
• Corporate culture: democratic or autocratic?
• Retaining employees: how will we motivate high performance managers in flatter organizations?
• International business: will we expect to work in a multicultural environment and need to increase our mobility - or will high tech communications reduce corporate travel?
• Global competitiveness: which are the dominant and emerging nations?
• Management strategies: will service, service, service still be the key to corporate success?
• The workplace: will we still herd together in offices or telecommute?
