   schema:reviewBody ""For over two decades, Beyond Bureaucracy has helped shape both modern academic thought and management practice with its far-reaching examination of the causes and consequences of change in organizations and leadership. Today, more than twenty-five years after the original publication of this work, many of its insightful essays - such as the prophetic "Democracy Is Inevitable" - are more relevant than ever before." "In this classic collection of essays management expert Warren Bennis employs a powerful behavioral science perspective to examine the strategic, methodological, and conceptual issues central to changing organizations. He details the evolution of the old bureaucracy into the democratic organization so prevalent today and articulates the adaptive leadership behaviors required to meet the needs of these new organizations. In addition, Bennis reveals how the problems of change affect human organizations and tells what leaders can do to direct the rate, shape, and consequences of change."--BOOK JACKET." ;
