The Science and Spirit of Management presents an evolutionary explanation of the fundamentals of management. It approaches the subject through a new paradigm that merges the physical and spiritual realities of human beings and acknowledges the oneness of humanity. This paradigm facilitates a comprehensive and coherent description of the role of management in the formation and functioning of organizations as organic systems harmonized with the concept of human beings as social and spiritual beings.
The Science and Spirit of Management presents an evolutionary explanation of the fundamentals of management. It does so primarily by linking the core management functions to different characteristics of a system-that is, to elements, structure, and processes.
Concurrent to the presentation of scientific aspects of the discipline, the book shows how justice, altruism, and courtesy are integral to social systems and, consequently, to the profession of management.
In the end, through a comprehensive and original layout of the large body of the management literature, the book provides an in-depth understanding of the profession, while assisting the reader to visualize how to put the newly-acquired knowledge into practice. This book is a valuable resource for aspiring, new and seasoned managers who want to perform at a level of excellence in order to contribute their share in creating fairer and happier workplaces and, consequently, more prosperous organizations and a better world for all.
