Douglas Rushkoff was one of the first social commentators to identify the new culture around the internet. He has spent nearly a decade advising companies on the ways they can re-orient their businesses to the transformations the internet has caused. Through his speaking and consulting, Rushkoff has discovered an important and unrecognized shift in American business. Too many companies are panicked and operating in survival mode when the worst of the crisis has already passed. Likening the internet transformation to the intellectual and technological ferment of the Enlightment, Rushkoff suggests we have a remarkable opportunity to re-integrate our new perspective with the work we actually do. Instead of running around trying to "think out of the box," Rushkoff demonstrates, now is the time to "get back in the box" and improve the way we do our jobs, run our operations and drive innovation from the ground up. Combining stories gleaned from his consulting with a thrilling tour of history's dramatic moments and clever readings of cultural shift we've just experienced, Rushkoff offers a compelling vision of the simple and effective ways businesses can re-invigorate themselves.

Have you ever noticed how all the buzzwords, trends, and "latest thinking" on management have very little to do with how things work in the real world? Seemingly every year, the management gurus dress their wisdom in the latest jargon, but it's been awhile since somebody shouted, "The emperor has no clothes!" Today, that somebody is Jo Owen, who has seen it all in his more than twenty years working with organizations of all types and sizes, including some of the world's most respected corporations. Management Stripped Bare is Owen's A-to-Z recounting of what he has learned (and now teaches) about how businesses actually operate. With dry and occasionally piercing humor, Owen examines the good, the bad, and the ugly of more than 150 universal management issues from leadership to accounting practices, performance appraisal to harassment policy, mergers & acquisitions to project management, and much more. Among his less traditional subjects are herd instincts, "-ists," blame, Mars Bars, the death of the Tea Lady (read the book!), and why attrition and stress are good. For novice and veteran managers disillusioned by blind faith in sacred cows, Jo Owen serves up the juiciest burgers in town. And while it's amazing that someone with tongue so firmly planted in cheek can speak so clearly, more impressive is the wealth of real solutions you'll be able to apply in your own work environment.
