Mary Parker Follett--prophet of management : a celebration of writings from the 1920s by Mary Parker Follett( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Mary Parker Follett died in 1933, her philosophy of business organization and management is echoed in companies today where quality circles employee empowerment, and more horizontal organizational structures built on networks and relationships have been adopted with impressive results. Ahead of her time in the 1920s and 1930s, Follett was a political scientist, social work pioneer, speaker, and advisor to leaders concerned with labor-management relations on both sides of the Atlantic. Her advocacy of conflict as a constructive and creative means of problem solving and her general criticism of strict hierarchical structures in business organizations ran counter to the administrative dictates of the post-World War II era. Accordingly, her insights were neglected in the years following her death, and much of her work fell out of print. In Mary Parker Follett - Prophet of Management, editor Pauline Graham presents a selection of Follett's remarkable writings, culled from all her work, including her lectures. These, delivered between 1925 and 1933, provide a fascinating perspective on critical management topics that have continued relevance for managers today: conflict, power, authority, leadership, control, the role of the individual in the group, and the place of business in society
The new state, group organization the solution of popular government by Mary Parker Follett( Book )

61 editions published between 1918 and 2015 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The New State" has a double purpose. It seeks to establish a point of view from which self-production and variation in the forms of the State may be rendered intelligible, and it endeavours to show the lines on which these forms may be adapted in the solution of practical questions. The relations of Labour to Capital are becoming progressively difficult as the labouring classes are advancing in education and ability for searching reflection. The questions which are every day arising cannot be wholly separated from their theoretical basis. This basis is being discussed everywhere, sometimes crudely, but more and more with insight and knowledge. The authoress has therefore undertaken to examine and restate it, and she does so with a learning and grasp which it would be difficult to surpass. There are few fields of research which she has not explored"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)
Creative experience by Mary Parker Follett( Book )

33 editions published between 1924 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The acceptance of the doctrine of circular or integrative behavior which I have tried to give in this book, lends a new significance to adjustment. This doctrine gives us hints of that "mystery moment" which leads from the existing to the new, shows us a progressive experience, the way of individual and social development. Yet it is not from the psychological field alone that our thought is receiving this impetus. The rapprochement of results from widely different fields of research is as striking as it is significant. The psychobiologist and the political scientist, physiologist and philosopher, jurist and psychologist, are reaching certain conclusions which bear a most suggestive resemblance to one another. And these conclusions lead to a conception of creative experience which is perhaps seminal for our future thinking, a conception which is surely destined to influence largely the social sciences"--Introduction.
