From filo faxes to palm pilots; from cell phones to laptops; from spreadsheets to online banking, many of us try to make the most of our day, to not waste any time, to maximize our efficiency. These are the hallmarks of time, financial, and information management. More and more we find ourselves managing our time, health, finances, careers and families. We are all managers now. In "The Culture of Management", Stefano Harney investigates how the principles of management now shape our lives, both individually and collectively. Ironically, as we embrace the tools of management in our personal lives, as workers we are often leery of the promises of management. In examining the work world, Harney finds that the age-old clash between management and worker is alive and well. But, instead of vilifying management, Harney asks: What new opportunities can the new management offer us? Chapters include coverage on such issues as popular management literature; management in a global context, the new labour movement versus the new management. "The Culture of Management" shows us that, for better or worse, we are all in the business with ourselves.
