An enlightened approach to creating fun and excellence in the work force, Working and Managing in a New Age focuses on the changes occurring in work and management as part of the broader New Age transformation. Garland explores the problems facing management with the arrival of the baby boomers, computers, the decline of unions and changing ethics in the workplace. He offers positive guidelines for self and company assessment for both labour and management. Techniques for transforming work, participatory management, management as a tool for social change, working parents and job tailoring are among the many topics presented.
