Chapter 12: Who manages the managers?
This chapter examines radical, liberal and more recent critical treatments of the changing role of management as it has striven to establish its professional bona fides from the early modern period onwards. It then considers the interesting possibility that managers now stand on the threshold of subjugating the very professions they once aspired to emulate. It ends by reconsidering the future prospects of allegedly failed forms of organisation - for example, workers’ cooperatives, kibbutzim and other syndicalist approaches - that consciously eschewed notions of hierarchical managerial control without totally rejecting capitalism.
