Calling a Halt to Mindless Change Summary

Calling a Halt to Mindless Change: Plea for Commonsense Management by John MacDonald

Flash fires (downsizing), false prophets (management gurus), and hysteria (change or die). There's an apocalyptic tenor to the way businesses operate, where every new "ism" trumpeted by every hot consultant is treated as gospel. When the trend-of-the-month fails to deliver the promised results, rediscover a better way to operate a business. Calling a Halt to Mindless Change proves that adhering to sound, commonsense business principles and striving for smart, evolutionary change - rather than mindless, revolutionary change - is the key to achieving long-term success.

Table of Contents

Part 1 Mindless change: between gods; false gods; entrenched fads; recent revolutions; mindless education. Part 2 Pause for thought: anticipating change; whatever happened to Buck Rogers?; a global challenge. Part 3 Simple common sense: purpose; focus; communication; people; stewardship.
