Förklaring

Covering subjects ranging from excessive auditing and the limitations of imposing best practice to the dangers of meetings and misplaced fear of AI, Volume 1 of Organisational Myths is more than just a taster for Volume 2. Drawing on multiple sources, it also challenges received wisdom such as post code lotteries being a bad thing and open competitive tendering being a good thing; it even questions the value of strategic thinking. Volume 1 finishes on the thorny topic of performance related pay - perfect preparation for the first Myth in Volume 2: ‘To attract the best, you must pay the best’.
