"Makes a provocative case that you should put customers second, close open offices, and ditch performance appraisals."--Adam Grant, best-selling author of Originals "Under New Management is a lively, provocative must-read."--Whitney Johnson, author of Disrupt Yourself. Why accepted management practices don't work--and how innovative companies are changing the rules Should your employees know each other's salaries? Is your vacation policy harming productivity? Does your hiring process undermine your team? David Burkus argues that the traditional management playbook is full of outdated, counterproductive practices, and he reveals how the alternative management revolution has already started at companies like Netflix, Zappos, Google, and others. Burkus investigates behind their office doors to show how these companies are reevaluating and reinventing the most basic management principles, like hiring, firing, vacation policy, and even office floor plan, and enhancing their business's success as a result. "Is your company ready for a radical departure from twentieth-century management standards? David Burkus has collected the stories of dozens of companies that are standing the old rules on their heads. Even better, Burkus shows how you can do it, too."--Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
