Under New Management: How Leading Organizations are Upending Business as Usual

breaking-chains-David BurkusDo open floor plans really work? Are there companies that put their employees’ welfare first, and their clients second? Are annual performance reviews necessary?

Dr. David Burkus is a highly regarded and increasingly influential business school professor who challenges many of the established principles of business management. Drawing on decades of research, he has found that not only are many of our fundamental management practices wrong and misguided, but they can be downright counterproductive.

These days, the best companies are breaking the old rules. In this recorded Master Class session, David shares research and insights that are convincing organizations to leave behind decades-old management practices to implement new ways of leading and building teams to enhance productivity and morale and achieve superior results.

Here’s what some attendees of the live event had to say:

  • “I feel that David lead us along the evolution of the hiring process thereby creating a frame of reference rather than discussing only the latest trends in isolation.”
  • “Stimulates thinking about the changing world of leadership.”
  • “Something every leader would benefit from absorbing and internalizing, then turning into action.”
