Fuzzy Management is designed for those who find current management orthodoxies inadequate, who are interested in alternative ideas and how they might be applied to management practice, but are not enthralled by the esoteric world of theoretical books about theory. This book offers a bridge between the 'esoteric world of theory and the practical world of management by exploring and illustrating some current theories (Fuzzy Logic, ActorNetwork Theory, Chaos Theory, Constructivism etc.) through discussion of some everyday management issues (Strategic Decision Making, Appraisals, Negotiation, Leadership, Culture, and Motivation). Crisp and concise, it will be a useful guide to all concerned with the relationship between management theory and practice.

Introduction: So What? 1: Fuzzy Logic: Managing in an Occluded World 2: Managing Fashions: A Eulogy for Flared Trousers 3: Chaos, Culture, and Evolution: The Configuration of Organization 4: Managing Change through Commitment: Autistic, New Model, and Pandorian Organizations 5: Deep Leadership: In Theory 6: Mismanaging Risk: The Madness of Cows 7: Negotiating: Groundhog Groundrules References
