Summary
  • The 20th century witnessed the rise of management as both a profession and a vital field of research and education. The Management Century provides a comprehensive overview of the people -- including Henry Ford, Mary Parker Follet, Ted Levitt, Harold Geneen, and Jack Welch -- the companies -- such as Sears Roebuck, DuPont, General Motors, Rand Corporation, and McDonalds -- and the ideas -- from the discovery of the organization, to the development of branding and mass markets, to the concept of quality and excellence -- that have shaped the business world we know
  • Organized chronologically, the book covers one hundred years of key movers and moments -- from the advent of mass production to today's global management model -- and gives managers, executives, consultants, and students powerful insights from the past that will help them navigate the challenges of the future
