Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

A provocative work that challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management — and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don’t work

Do open floor plans really work? Are there companies that put their employees’ welfare first, and their clients second? Are annual performance reviews necessary?

Dr. David Burkus is a highly regarded and increasingly influential business school professor who challenges many of the established principles of business management. Drawing on decades of research, Burkus has found that not only are many of our fundamental management practices wrong and misguided, but they can be downright counterproductive.

These days, the best companies are breaking the old rules. At some companies, e-mail is now restricted to certain hours, so that employees can work without distraction. Netflix no longer has a standard vacation policy of two to three weeks, but instructs employees to take time off when they feel they need it. And at Valve Software, there are no managers; the employees govern themselves.

The revolutionary insights Burkus reveals here will convince companies to leave behind decades-old management practices and implement new ways to enhance productivity and morale.

Reviews

"Is your company ready for a radical departure from 20th-century management standards and a bold move into a new approach? In Under New Management, David Burkus has collected the stories of dozens of companies that are making this journey. They’re standing the old rules on their heads and running their businesses with refreshing amounts of transparency and autonomy. Even better, Burkus shows how you can do it, too.”
—Daniel H. Pink , bestselling author of DRIVE and TO SELL IS HUMAN


"I can't stop raving about Under New Management to friends and colleagues. If you are going to read one book on being a better manager in the next year, start here. David Burkus has assembled the most practical research and provocative ideas into an incredibly quick read.”
—Tom Rath , bestselling author of STRENGTHS FINDER 2.0


"In Under New Management, Burkus hauls 20th-century management ideas to the scrap heap while revealing counterintuitive practices that will drive organizational performance in the back half of the 21st century. And like any good manager, he under-promises, and over-delivers. Under New Management is a lively, provocative, must read."
—Whitney Johnson, Thinkers50, World's Most Influential Management Thinkers, author of DISRUPT YOURSELF: PUTTING THE POWER OF DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION TO WORK


“David Burkus challenges established management principles and reveals the counterintuitive practices that really drive organizational performance. Under New Management makes a provocative case that you should put customers second, close open offices, and ditch performance appraisals.”
—Adam Grant , Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of GIVE AND TAKE and ORIGINALS
