David K. Hurst has spent twenty-five years as an operating manager, often handling crises and turnaround conditions, and is also a widely experienced consultant, teacher, and writer on business topics and issues. This book is his innovative integration of management practice and theory, using a systems perspective and analogies drawn from nature to illustrate groundbreaking ideas and their real-world application. Hurst's objective is to help readers make meaning from their own management experience and education, and to encourage improvement in their practical judgment and wisdom.
