It's time to reinvent management. You can help.

“We need more than new management practices, we need new management principles.”

That means rebuilding the foundations of management thought and practice. Scholars and practitioners alike must search for new principles in fields as diverse as anthropology, biology, design, political science, urban planning, and theology.
