Fifth Generation Management: Co-creating Through Virtual Enterprising, Dynamic Teaming, and Knowledge Networking
This revised edition of Fifth Generation Management helps executives out of the rigid mindsets of the Industrial Era into the vibrant and invigorating possibilities of co-creation in the Knowledge Era.
Divided into two parts, the first completely rewritten section narrates 'Five Days that Changed the Enterprise', a case study of senior executives who are forced out of their cozy little empires into a new network organization of their own design. The second part discusses the process of co-creating through virtual enterprising, dynamic teaming, and knowledge networking. Included is essential new information on fractal enterprises, holonic management systems, agile enterprises, and hypertext organizations.
