The Stone Age Company
Why the Companies We Work for Are Dying and How They Can Be SavedeBook - 2005
Hard hitting and focused in its attack, this warning shot of a book stands out with its message that those companies that refuse to change their basic, long-held operating strategies will not survive in the rapidly changing world of work. The business hierarchy that seeks to monitor and control workers' methods and output is outmoded, the text claims, and must be changed even at the risk of hurting those who have always benefited from hierarchical arrangements- the executives and managers. The book further argues that current managing techniques stifle the ability of people and organizations to grow. There is a solution, however, and the chapters offer ways to keep talented employees, serve shareholders, and base business practices in growth rather than efficiency and control. A detailed case study puts a real-life spin on the theories and choices explained within the pages, strongly making the case that only companies willing to re-envision themselves now will have a place in tomorrow's business landscape.
