According to Jim Hoopes, the fundamental principles on which business is based - authority, power, control - are increasingly at odds with principles of life in a democratic society - freedom, equality, individualism. "False Prophets" critically examines the pioneering theories of the early management thinkers, such as Taylor, Follett, Mayo and Deming, which intended to democratize corporate life yet have proved antithetical to the successful practice of business. Hoopes challenges popular management movements that followed in the wake of these thinkers and accuses today's business theorists of perpetuating bad management in the name of democratic values. He urges executives and managers to recognize the realities of corporate life and learn to apply the principles of power. He also unveils a new management agenda that should be of significance to modern organizations.
