Drawing on over 30 years of consulting experience and a multi-disciplinary background, Philip Grant challenges conventional wisdom on managing performance in organizations. The topics that he addresses include job and organizational design, employee motivation, the integration of behavioral and economic theories, the diagnosis of performance problems, and the synthesis of operations management models. Each chapter focuses on a particular innovative aspect of his model while the appendix provides information for the practical application of the ideas presented in the text. Innovations in Management Thinking will enlighten readers and give them the tools for individual and organizational success.
