In this our final chapter, we focus on the management of workplace humor. In the preceding chapters—particularly Chaps.  8 and  9, we have seen the best and the worst that humor can do. At the end of each chapter except the first one we have provided ‘takeaways’—bite-sized pieces of advice about what organizational members, particularly managers, can do to ‘get it right’ in relation to humor. Here, we try to consolidate our material.
