Gods of Management

Front Cover
A witty allegory of the four types of organisation: the club culture, ruled over by Zeus; the role culture, whose patron saint is Apollo; the task culture, owing allegiance to Athena; and the existential culture, whose people come under the orbit of Dionysus. This work is for the survivors in a world of changing organisational culture.
