New Beginnings for Management
A must-have for all management schools and students, all business leaders and managers, and all public and political institutions, this book will teach readers what management, management education, and education management are all about. The reader will now have a guide to the output of the management industry, and the value and basis of that output, enabling them to make informed choices, to question, and to learn the enforceable ethical standards for the conduct of all professional management. Described as "a magnificent work...very impressive" by a leading management expert and scholar, this is the first comprehensive history of management. It produces evidence through that to show how management and management education developed. Errors arising are clearly demonstrated. A direct, practical reform agenda is set forward. All major known theories are put forward, simply explained. A new paradigm for management studies is created. This provides for a comprehensive, comprehensible, new basis for practice and theory based on sustainability, history and ethics. Dr Waitt's call for an enforceable ethical code and practical guide to its introduction, demonstration and adoption is the defining twenty first century turning point for management and management education. The subject is now the most popular university under- and post-graduate study, for which students are incurring substantial and ever increasing debt. This very important work shows how and why value for money must be achieved. This work can change management, at all levels, forever.
