It includes models, paradigms, mathematical equations, and other theoretical frameworks.
The Evolution of Management Thought by Daniel A. Wren; Arthur G. Bedeian
Publication Date: 2008
The sixth edition of author Daniel Wren's classic text provides a comprehensive understanding of the origin and development of ideas in management. This text traces the evolution of management thought from its earliest days to the present, by examining the backgrounds, ideas and influences of its major contributors. The authors discuss various theories of management in their historical context, showing how they've changed over time. The text does this in a chronological framework, yet each part is designed as a separate and self-contained unit of study; substantial cross-referencing provides the opportunity for connecting earlier to later developments as a central unifying theme. nbsp;
