Description

Developing vital themes discussed in Volume 1, Volume 2 of Organisational Myths tackles dogma such as the reasons for high c-suite pay, rigorous planning and budgeting and even the need for growth. Drawing on multiple sources, it highlights often ignored issues like the lack of c-suite agility revealed by a constant quest for certainty. It suggests some radical solutions, including a total revision of the way in which the workforce is trained and its skills assessed. But this volume goes further, asking if organisations can change effectively without rebalancing the current economic model.
