ROCHESTER, Mich., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran author (Understanding China, 2015, etc.) and seasoned executive, Gary Moreau, recently unveiled the second volume of the Understanding series.
"In lock step with the rise of professional management has come the glorification of all things quantitative. Data mining, talent graphing, financial modeling, and statistical research now dominate corporate strategy and decision-making. And it's not working," Gary Moreau.
Summary: "We don't see the failure of today's management model because we don't allow ourselves to," says Moreau. "We see what we think the numbers are telling us in much the same way ancient soothsayers read their bag of bones. We have poisoned the workplace and commoditized the management process itself. In the end, talent cannot be graphed and personal performance cannot be reduced to a bell curve. And there is, by definition, no data from the future, where success and failure await. In the end, objectivity is largely a myth."
"More than a guidebook for managers, this is a manifesto for an intellectually deeper—and happier—world of business." Kirkus Reviews (starred review).
