Product Description

From the Back Cover

'Workplace democracy', 'empowerment', 'team leaders', 'knowledge workers', this is the language of management today. But does this language herald a brave new workplace? Or does it mask a new form of capitalism?

Format: Paperback
The book is a thoughtful, balanced and readable review of the changes taking place in the workplace under "fast capitalism." It provides much-needed balance to the uncritical promotion of change by promoters of "fast capitalism" like Peter Drucker and Tom Peters. Two excellent case studies show some limitations to the ways in which change is being promoted and underpinned.
