Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

McGregor's timeless principles and influential thinking--now updated for a new generation of managers

First published in 1960, The Human Side of Enterprise has become a worldwide management bible. Douglas McGregor's revolutionary Theory Y—which contends that individuals are self-motivated and self-directed—influenced major management gurus such as Peter Drucker and Warren Bennis. This annotated edition shows how today's leaders successfully incorporated McGregor's methods into modern management styles and practices to nurture leadership ability, create effective management teams, provide better feedback, achieve high performance, and cultivate a value-driven workplace.

"With every passing year, McGregor's message becomes ever more relevant, more timely, and more important."—Peter Drucker

About the Author

Douglas McGregor is one of the most influential management thinkers of all time. His Theory Y approach is at the core of virtually all of today's leading management and workplace models. He was a founding faculty member of MIT's Sloan School of Management and served as president of Antioch College.

Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld is a Senior Research Scientist in MIT's Sloan School of Management and Engineering Systems Division, where his scholarship centers on underlying values and assumptions about people at work, in organizations, in complex systems, and across societies-building on and extending the core of McGregor's contribution.
