9780136026082: Management and Machiavelli: Discovering a New Science of Management in the Timeless Principles of Statecraft

Anthony Jay shows you how the new science of management is a continuation of the old art of government. By looking at your own corporate organization in a political/historical context, you can fully understand its power structure - what Machiavelli wrote about statecraft in the sixteenth century holds true for business and management in the late twentieth century. Applying Machiavellian precepts to such modern corporations as General Motors, Apple Computer, and Microsoft, Jay discovers self-contained states with courtiers and diplomats, orthodoxy and heresy lurking under their smooth corporate veneers. Though humorous, Jay's message is clear. To understand the workings of corporation or states, you must understand the nature and behavior of their leaders. And that hasn't changed since the Middle Ages.
