The ongoing revolution in management
In November 2010, I reviewed a large number of books that discuss in various ways the ongoing reinvention of management and I presented my synthesis of the five interlocking principles of radical management in a twelve-part series of articles. Since then, I have been writing on a regular basis and applying the principles to a variety of current management issues. You can follow those articles here.

Reinventing management: key principles
The practices to implement the five principles:
Other key posts include:
- The principles of radical management enable you to see immediately what’s wrong with Google’s almost universally admired mission of “organizing the world’s information” and see why it is leading Google astray.

- The principles reveal with stunning clarity why apparently successful exemplars of old school management like General Electric [GE] and Wal-Mart [WMT] are going down the tubes unless they change their ways.
- You can see why why Salesforce.com [CRM] has become so incredibly successful.
- The principles enable you to decipher an article in, say, Harvard Business Review or Strategy+Business and see immediately whether it’s part of the future or a trip back into the past.
- The principles of radical management can also be applied to public sector activities like government, health, education or space exploration.
