Under New Management Discussion Kit

Specially designed to guide work teams or book clubs through Under New Management

“Is your company ready for a radical departure from 20th-century management standards and a bold move into a new approach? In UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT, David Burkus has collected the stories of dozens of companies that are making this journey. They’re standing the old rules on their heads and running their businesses with refreshing amounts of transparency and autonomy. Even better, Burkus shows how you can do it, too.”

Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and To Sell is Human

A provocative work that challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management — and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don't work.

Do open floor plans really work? Are there companies that put their employees’ welfare first, and their clients second? Are annual performance reviews necessary?

Dr. David Burkus is a highly regarded and increasingly influential business school professor who challenges many of the established principles of business management. Drawing on decades of research, Burkus has found that not only are many of our fundamental management practices wrong and misguided, but they can be downright counterproductive.

These days, the best companies are breaking the old rules. At some companies, e-mail is now restricted to certain hours, so that employees can work without distraction. Netflix no longer has a standard vacation policy of two to three weeks, but instructs employees to take time off when they feel they need it. And at Valve Software, there are no managers; the employees govern themselves.

The revolutionary insights Burkus reveals here will convince companies to leave behind decades-old management practices and implement new ways to enhance productivity and morale.

This Discussion Kit is specially designed to guide work teams or book clubs through the content and help them apply it to their work and life. The kit includes:

  • exclusive videos from the author
  • a slide deck to guide discussion
  • worksheets
  • a facilitator’s guide
  • and more
