UPDATE: I’m happy to add some downloads here linking the poetry, particularly of David Whyte, to contemporary management. Removed.
I am currently reading The Heart Aroused. I really recommend it as a an overview of modern views on management. If you mean to get into positive organizational scholarship or positive psychology or the Edge Economy and networked competing supply chains, crowd-sourced solutions and cognitive surplus, you need to read this book.
UPDATE: 03 July 2010. With Clay Shirky’s book on Cognitive Surplus about to come out, and the British governments experiments in crowd-sourcing, we will see renewed interest in people-driven ventures mediated online.
The big question is whether business has the imagination to go this route or whether they will remain locked in to models of secrecy.
