Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The last two decades were marked by an intense fascination with, and a continued proliferation of, books on management, managers, and organizations. Bookstores around the country featured a larger number than ever before of management books, and many of these books found themselves on, or close to, the "best-sellers" list. Clearly, both managers and the general public remain intrigued by, and are searching for answers in, the popular business literature.

The Manager's Bookshelf. A Mosaic of Contemporary Views was prepared both for managers and management students. A significant number of individuals in both of these groups do not have sufficient time to read widely, yet many people find themselves involved in conversations where someone else refers to ideas like vision, self-directed workteams, or spirituality. We believe that a laudable goal for managers as well as all students of management is to remain current in their understanding of the views being expressed about organizational and management practices. To help you become a better-informed organizational citizen, we prepared The Manager's Bookshelf, which introduces you to more than 40 recently popular management books.

The Manager's Bookshelf, as a book of concise readings, does not express the views of one individual on the management of organizations, nor does it attempt to integrate the views of several dozen authors. Instead, this book is a collage—a composite portrait constructed from a variety of sources. It provides you with insights into many aspects of organizational management from the perspectives of a diverse group of management writers, including some highly regarded authors such as Douglas McGregor, Ed Lawler, Chris Argyris, Dan Goleman, Stephen Covey, Bill Byham, Thomas Peters, Margaret Wheatley, John Case, Peter Senge, and Judy Rosener. Through this collection we will introduce you to the thoughts, philosophy, views, and experiences of a number of authors whose works have captivated the attention of today's management community.

This book contains a rich array of pieces. From a topical perspective, its inclusions focus on ethics, global perspectives, participative practices, environmental trends, organizational culture, managing diversity, strategy, and managerial/ leadership styles. This collection includes the views from a variety of individuals—some practitioners, some philosophers, some management consultants, and some management educators. The selections reflect a wide variety in terms of their tone and tenor, as well as the bases for their conclusions. Indeed, critics have characterized some of the authors' works as passionate, invaluable, and insightful, whereas others have been attacked as overly academic, superficial, or unrealistic.

The nature and source of the ideas expressed in this collection are diverse. Some inclusions are prescriptive in nature, whereas others are descriptive; some are philosophical, whereas others report on personal or organizational experiences; some of these works represent armchair speculation, whereas others are based on empirical study. Finally, the selections take a variety of forms. Some of the readings are excerpts extracted from the original book, some of the readings are articles written by the book's author in which part of their philosophy on management is revealed, and some of the inclusions are descriptive summaries of popular books that. have been specially prepared for inclusion in The Manager's Bookshelf.

This collage can provide you with useful insights, stimulate your thinking, and spark stimulating dialogue with your colleagues about the management of today's organizations. We hope these readings will prompt you to raise questions of yourself and your peers about the viability of many of the ideas expressed by these authors regarding the practice of organizational management. If these goals are met, our purpose for assembling this collection will be realized.
