This podcast reviews “A History of Management Thought” by Morgen Witzel, a graduate textbook on organization and management theory. We will undertake a brief explanation of what the term management meant from the beginning of humanity to the present day. Still, the problems in its history are the apparent faults and ‘holes.’ This book moved me by its effort to “plug in the hole” by posing a debate on the power structures of early capitalism, to criticism of contemporary management theory. The podcast shares some of the most important insights into the history of management.
