Beyond Empowerment: The Age of the Self-Managed Organization

Empowerment programs swept through corporate America in the last two decades. Unfortunately, bolting empowerment programs onto existing power structures often led to the appearance of empowerment--without the actual power.

They are immune from threats or coercion. They are ...

Self-Organization in Complex Ecosystems. (MPB-42) (Monographs in Population Biology)
Ricard V. Solé
Princeton University Press
Can physics be an appropriate framework for the understanding of ecological science? Most ecologists would probably agree that there is little relation between the complexity of natural ecosystems and the simplicity of any example derived from Newtonian physics. Though ecologists have long been interested in concepts originally developed by statistical physicists and later applied to explain everything from why stock markets crash to why rivers ...

Volume 29 in Advances in ...
Stewardship: Choosing Service Over Self-Interest (BK Business)
NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED Stewardship was provocative, even revolutionary, when it was first published in 1993, and it remains every bit as relevant and radical today. Most organizations still rely on patriarchy and hierarchy as their core form of governance, stifling initiative and spirit and alienating people from the work they do. Peter Block asserts that a fundamental shift in how we distribute power, privilege, and the control of ...

Self-Organization of Hot Plasmas: The Canonical Profile Transport Model
In this monograph the author presents the Canonical Profile Transport Model or CPTM as a rather general mathematical framework to simulate plasma discharges. The description of hot plasmas in a magnetic fusion device is a very challenging task and many plasma properties still lack a physical explanation. One important property is plasma self-organization. It is very well known from experiments that the radial profile of the plasma pressure and ...
