Wise Management in Organisational Complexity is an interdisciplinary response to widely debated concerns on the state of management under the stresses of 'sound-byte' communications and of organisational complexity. Aristotle's principles of wisdom are applied in contemporary management and governance and are linked to the larger idea of human potential and the Common Good. A Chinese philosophical perspective on Confucian meritocracy and Wangdao management brings a fresh perspective to an insightful anthology of analysis and reflection relevant to managers, researchers and teachers in management education. The reader is challenged to explore the practice of wisdom and to find new inter-disciplinary, methodological and pedagogical approaches for its application. Interest in wisdom as a topic for research has been growing across the disciplines of organisational studies, leadership studies, philosophy and psychology. The authors demonstrate an alternative to the disciplinary silo approach to management studies and offer a challenging alternative to current research methods.Robert Chiais Research Professorof Management atthe AdamSmith Business School, University of Glasgow.
