Management and the Dominance of Managers (Routledge Series in Management)

Buy
This book investigates the portrait of management as value-free ‘technicality’ and challenges the image of managers as the selfless pursuer of an organization’s survival and development. It explains that individual interests and careers of managers are only part of a wider picture with managers as the new ruling class using and misusing organizations for their own personal and group interests.

When it is about organisations then it is about management. The organisations of our time are in essence managerial organisations (e.g. Grey 1999, Jacques 1996, Rosen 1984, Burnham 1941); even our societies are managerial societies. Our businesses and companies, both private and public sectors, our whole economy and society, even our private lives haven been conquered by yet another ideology—the ideology of management. As Thrift (2002, p. 19) put it: ‘The awful thing about modern management discourse is that you can’t escape it. It is on the walls, in people’s mouths, creeping into every moment of human interaction.’
