About this book

Introduction

Employee and manager rebellions occur more often than you might think. This book argues how important it is to take these protests seriously. The authors demonstrate that when middle managers rebel, they aren't just letting off steam, and that their acts of creative protest can even produce benefits for their companies. Rebellion can pay off!

Reviews

'The book provides food for thought for senior management who dream of empowering (and of ensnaring) their most able young executives' - Les Echos

'It shows how the relationship of upcoming executives to their work, and to society at large, is changing. It could help sound the death knell for management by numbers' - Le Monde Economie

'Courpasson and Thoenig provide a series of key insights into how corporations work at this level' - Professor Pierre Eric Tixier, Sciences-Po, Paris
