Outsourcing and Management shows how the next generation of executives will employ outsourcing, systematic thinking, disciplined management, and effective use of technology to redefine organizational structure and drive performance to new levels. Too many executives still fail to grasp how the organizational whole becomes greater than the sum of its individual parts. Layers of bureaucracy, dysfunctional behavior, and simple inertia continue to impose a drag on organizational performance at all levels. Outsourcing and Management identifies and defines important new economy organizational dysfunctions -- the Moving-Target Theory of Management, Internal Monopoly, the Bozo-CEO, and the Stream-of-Consciousness Manager -- all of which are destined for the scrapheap.
