Social philosopher Charles Handy is widely regarded as the chief prophet of the modern workplace. Many of his predictions have already come true, including the decline of the traditional organization and job, and the emergence of the portfolio career. In this fascinating volume, Robert Heller reveals the key ideas shaping Charles Handy's radical approach to business management, and presents a series of masterclasses that show how to apply his unique insights. Explore Handy's views on: seeing businesses as communities, the four gods of organizational culture, challenging dogma, making groups work, living by the "doughnut principle", the benefits of a horizontal career, and curing role stress. Supplying lessons from today's most celebrated and successful business thinkers, the Business Masterminds series is perfect for people hoping to advance their careers, make their own businesses grow and prosper, or achieve personal goals. In addition to providing overviews of each leader's most influential writings and speeches, each title is packed with full-color charts, diagrams, and photographs that graphically illustrate complex concepts.

About the Author:

Robert Heller is himself a prolific author of management books. The first, The Naked Manager, published in 1972, established Heller as an iconoclastic, wide-ranging guide to managerial excellence -- and incompetence. Heller has drawn on the extensive knowledge of managers and management that he acquired as the founding editor of Management Today, Britain's premier business magazine, which he headed for 25 years. Books such as The Supermanagers and In Search of European Excellence address the ways in which the latest ideas on change, quality, and motivation are providing new routes to business success. In 1990 Heller wrote Culture Shock, one of the first books to describe how IT would revolutionize management. Since then, as writer, lecturer, and consultant, Heller has continued to tell managers how to "Ride the Revolution," the title of his 2000 book, written with Paul Spenley. His books for Dorling Kindersley's Essential Managers series are international bestsellers.
