Light Footprint Management: Leadership in Times of Change – Charles-Edouard Bouee
What can managers in today’s uncertain, unimaginably complex world learn from President Obama’s military doctrine and Chinese management style? Charles-Edouard Bouee proposes the adoption of “light footprint” management – comparable to President Barack Obama’s military doctrine and similar to the recent emergence of vision and tactics over strategy in Chinese management. Bouee argues that this shift in approach blazes a trail that Western companies will be obliged to follow, and explains how conventional management methodologies, techniques and tools can be adapted to the conditions of an increasingly ambiguous and apparently unmanageable world.
Light Footprint Management sets out a road-map for the transformation of companies into adaptable, post-strategic business organisations.
