Review:

The only thing we can say with any certainty about management in 20 years' time is it will be substantially different from today. The question is, of course, how will it be different? And how can we adopt these new techniques before every one else does and gain a competitive edge? Well, you could do a lot worse than ask the world's top management thinkers and futurists for their views. Which is exactly what Subir Chowdhury, an executive vice president at the American Supplier Institute, has done in Management 21C.

The book is a collection of essays and speculations by the likes of Peter Senge, Sumantra Ghoshal, Barry Posner, and 23 more management heavyweights on the future of business, leadership, process, and organization. The breadth and diversity of the speculations make them almost impossible to summarize. But if there is one recurring theme, it's that management is shifting from a masculine paradigm to a feminine one. If during the bulk of the 20th century management was about male things such as certainty, predictability, competition, domination, and winning, in the 21st century it will be concerned with more ladylike traits such as uncertainty, ambivalence, change, collaboration, paradoxes, cooperation--and winning.

In his own provocative essay, Chowdury describes how new managers will have to become multiskilled, people-centered leaders whose most important task is inspiring the workforce with emotion and belief. He argues that in the next century corporate success will depend on the effective use of talent: "[T]he relentless pursuit of talent should be a main management strategy. More and more companies simply cannot recruit talent fast enough." Return on talent, he argues, will become a key business measure just like return on capital. Senior managers will ignore this thought-provoking collection of essays at their peril. --Alex Benady

From the Inside Flap:

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," describes the 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.
