Om bogen

  1. Beskrivelse

Beskrivelse

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’.

About the author

Before his current work consulting, teaching and writing, he recently commissioned mental health services within the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and has a particular interest in work and mental health.
