Handy jargon-free observations pack more power because of their clarity and prescriptive nature. --'Fortune'A man with a lifetime s experience... One of the more stimulating books on management. --'Financial Times'This is a serious book, while improving on the majority of managerial texts by being entertaining as well as instructive. --'Management Today' --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. The four gods of the title - Zeus, Apollo, Athena and Dionysus - symbolize the different styles of management and culture to be found in organizations. The underlying point is that management is not a precise science, but more of a creative and political process, owing much to the prevailing culture and traditions of the organization. Part 1 explains the theory of cultures and how it applies to organizations; Part 2 examines the major cultural crisis affecting businesses today; as the multi-layered and multi-structured organizations - in the Apollonian or bureaucratic model - have reached a dead end and must give way to the cultures of Zeus and Dionysus, gods of individualism and personal power.
