Handbook of Management Fads by Steve Morris
Book DescriptionThis guide debunks certain management terms and concepts in an anecdotal style. For added authenticity, it includes quotes from managers who rode the wave of particular fads and are now able to revisit their experiences with the subversive benefit of hindsight. Management is sometimes taken rather too seriously by commentators and business analysts. This is an unfortunate tendency, and provides the focus for this humorous book about management fads, both past and present. The kinds of management fads that are covered include: Pareto analysis; TQM; re-engineering; downsizing; delayering; CCT; performance management; scientific management; matrix management; chaos theory; empowerment; teamworking; quality; team briefings; performance-related pay; flat structures; fat structures; lean structures; MBAs; and management objectives. The book includes quotations, anecdotes, headings for each fad; an A to Z glossary and a devil's guide to management language.

It's an age-old question: is it nature or nurture? Can there really be a 'demon seed' that causes serial killers to act the way they do? Or is it an unfortunate combination of influences and events during their formative years that has turned them into such monsters?
