Offering a bridge between the esoteric world of theory and the practical world of management, Keith Grint here explores current theories such as Fuzzy Logic, Actor-network Theory, Chaos Theory, and Constructivism, through the discussion of some everyday management issues such as Strategic Decision Making, Appraisals, Negotiation, Leadership, Culture, and Motivation. Crisp and concise, this book is a useful guide to all those concerned with the relationship between management theory and practice.
Fuzzy Management is designed for thsoe who find current management orthodoxies inadequate, who are interested in alternative ideas and how they might be applied to management practice, but are not enthralled by the esoteric world of theoretical books about theory. This book offers a bridge between the `esoteric' world of theory and the `practical' world of management by exploring and illustrating some current theories (Fuzzy Logic, Actor-Network Theory, Chaos Theory, Constructivism etc.) through discussion of some everyday management issues (Strategic Decision Making, Appraisals, Negotiation, Leadership, Culture, and Motivation). Crisp and concise, it will be a useful guide to all concerned with the relationship between management theory and practice.
