The Russian Methodological School of Management, drawing on the path-breaking work of the late Georgy Shchedrovitsky, represents a major contribution to systems theory as it developed in the second half of the 20C. The uniqueness of this book is that it offers a whole new perspective not only on the way systems theory developed and was successfully applied in the industrialisation of what became a world super-power, but also on how its practitioners continue to use it to improve the management of large organisations in Russia today. It will no doubt come to be regarded as an indispensable guide for individuals pursuing careers in the management of large organizations in all sectors of society. Gregory Andrusz, B.Soc.Sc.(Russian Studies), PhD; Emeritus Professor of Comparative Sociology, Middlesex University, London; Honorary Research Fellow, Centre for Russian and East European Studies, University of Birmingham; Member of Russia-Asia Programme, Chatham House Readers should not feel intimidated by the size of this manuscript. Not only does it offer a clear account of the theory of knowledge management, developed by the school of thought led by G.Shchedrovitsky, but it also provides up to date examples of winning strategies and lessons in effective leadership of large organisations in Russia today. -- Robert F. Smyth CFO, Regal Petroleum plc For those that cannot imagine that anything can be learnt from Russian management, this volume would be a real mind changer. It has a wealth of insights that a wide range of readers would find highly original. Shchedrovitsky and methodological circle may soon become an unavoidable part of textbooks on management and social change. -- Slavo Radosevic Professor of industry and innovation studies, UCL, and Director of the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies
