Rethinking Management: Radical Insights from the Complexity Sciences

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In Rethinking Management, Chris Mowles argues that management courses may cause as many crises as they alleviate. Taking examples of managing and leading in contemporary organisations, his book treats uncertainty as central to the task of leading and managing and explores the limits of current management theories. It provides alternatives to grids and frameworks and encourages management professionals and educators to recognise judgment, improvisation and experience are vital to good management and leadership.
