The Challenge of Contemporary Management

The Challenge of Contemporary Management

(p.203) CHAPTER 8 The Challenge of Contemporary Management
Between Enterprise and Ethics

John Hendry (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter turns from a description of business and management in the bimoral society to the challenges facing contemporary managers. It is argued that whereas in a traditional bureaucratic context the role of managers was largely technical and leadership was needed only at times of change, contemporary organizations, which rely for their success on the diverse self-interests of their members, need leadership simply to hold together. The manager now must be a leader — and a moral leader — managing learning in a moral community.
