Description & Features+
Our organizations are flooded with empty talk. We are constantly "going forward" to lands of "deliverables", stopping off on the "journey" to "drill down" into "best practice". This book channels Harry Frankfurt to characterize such empty talk as bullshit which makes no reference to truth.
Management scholar AndrT Spicer investigates the advantages of business bullshit as well as its costs. The book shows how the creation and propagation of bullshit has been industrialized by marketers but is rife in business life generally - from the entrepreneur, through the human resources manager to the finance department. The author concludes with suggestions of how to minimize business bullshit - reconnecting aspects of organizations with core activities.
This provocative, lucid book is required reading for business students, researchers, employees and managers.
