Are big corporations (the elephants) out of control?
Now in paperback, this insightful and controversial work from Britain’s bestselling author and world-class management guru looks at how individuals (the fleas) relate to multi-national conglomerates (the elephants).
“It is easy to see why many observers think that the big corporations are now both richer and more powerful than many nation states. They worry that these new corporate states are accountable to no-one… that their financial clout makes governments beholden to them… The elephants, people feel, are out of control.”
Drawing on his experience of life and work, Charles Handy discusses the future of everything -- from education, work and marriage to capitalism, management, religion and society.
