Fall Reading - Day 4: Under New Management

Under New Management by David Burkus is a great primer for the options we have in our futures of work (plural intended: we should be crafting these futures, not focused on any one). From killing email, to pay transparency and reduced hierarchies, this is a book that will appear when I do my "business books: fact or fiction" class (under fact). Students may not want to hear it from a professor, but maybe they'll take heed from Burkus. Many of the techniques we see in modern organizations are still built for the organizations, technology, and people of the 50s.

About my Fall Reading List: Some of these books are new for 2017. Others, published before 2017, may be even more important now than they were when first published... at least for me. You'll see a clear focus on the future of work, as well as some heavy hitting general management books. Some link to my earlier reviews, others I'll just share what I was looking for and what I found. If these sound good to you, here is a set from prior years

I'm trying something new and will be posting one a day. How long will this take? Depends on how fast I read! I started the list early in the summer, but still have a few in the hopper. Here is the full list if you can't wait. Disclaimers: Where I have received a free copy, I have also purchased at least one more. I am using affiliate links.
