It's been with us since the dawn of civilization. But only in the past one hundred years has management been recognized, and formalized, as a profession. Now, in The Management Century, business journalist Stuart Crainer offers a fascinating, lively tour of management's golden age in a book filled with historic characters any novelist would envy. From Henry Ford to W. Edwards Deming, the innovators Crainer visits here are as in-triguing as the ideas they championed. It's a work that breathes real life into a chronology that's embedded with valuable insights for every student of management theory and practice.
