This book brings together distinguished writers from diverse fields and their specialised perspectives on new ideas and the challenges they pose to the hegemony of neo-classical scientific management. It explores various possibilities for the future development of the understanding of management and organisation in the context of new economic conditions taking shape in both the East and the West. The focus on these makes this volume topical. It provides today’s managers with alternatives to conventional approaches to management that are now facing a credibility crunch.

Managing in Changing Times: A Guide for the Perplexed Manager shows the manager that there are no easy, quick-fix, off the shelf solutions to complex problems. Solutions require thinking and action with multiple perspectives and require considerable effort to master. This imparts the book a global appeal as it speaks to every manager. The initial chapters present the ideas of Schumacher and Capra which, the author shows, could be used as catalysts to evolve a post-scientific global management era.

The book will be a handy reference material for students of management, managers and management pundits.
