New Age Managers For Projects
Dealing With a "World Turned Upside Down"
In the late 1980s, there was talk of a new age, of radical new environments for businesses and services. In 1987 Tom Peters in his book, Thriving on Chaos, was saying that it’s a “world turned upside down” and offered prescriptions for dealing with these “chaotic” times-times of rapid change, uncertainty and the need for rapid innovation. He said that we need a new theory of management or, at least, some new generally accepted principles.
