Unmasking Management Theoreticians

  • Steven Segal

Abstract

The turn to philosophical experience is reflected not only in the experiences of corporate leaders but in the theoretical literature on management and in the practices of educating managers. In both cases there is a turn towards a new “paradigm” for management. This view is widespread in management and is summarised in the work of Chris Davis who maintains that “Managers, CEO’s and academics alike are thirsty for a new paradigm through which to interpret our rapidly evolving global culture. As the focus turns from tangibles, like widgets to intangibles, like quality and customer satisfaction, we are facing the foundation of a new culture; hyperconnectivity, new economic standards and measures, wholly new mediums for communicating, new interpretations of power, value and waste.”
