Product Description

According to Stephen Pattison, managers have become the cultural heroes of our time. In this book, he examines some of the values, assumptions, beliefs and practices they embrace. Managerialism, he argues, is a form of religious faith, and he criticizes the utopianism of those whom managers look upon as gurus. He suggests that managers should apply to their faith some of the critical spirit that theologians have applied to religious belief. His book will be of interest to all who want more from management than manipulative technique and incomprehensible jargon. Stephen Pattison is a senior lecturer in the School of Health and Social Welfare at The Open University. He has been an ethicist and management specialist and theologian.
