Success through Partnership
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 04.07.2012 - 288 Seiten
The American businessman has traditionally turned to top American leaders and academics for information on management techniques. But in an increasingly global economy, the lessons to be learned from the experience of foreign business leaders are essential for all American managers. Reinhard Mohn's revised edition of Success Through Partnership—expanded with essays on vanity in the life of a manager and new goals in the workplace, and with a new chapter on freedom for the creative man—remains an important addition to the American manager's bookshelf. Although Mohn's views do not necessarily represent the majority of European or German management, his opinion is highly respected. One of the most successful businessmen of the postwar era, he has built his company, Bertelsmann, Inc., into one of the biggest media conglomerates in the world.
Mohn has developed and practiced some of the most innovative management techniques we have seen during the postwar period. With the expansion of Bertelsmann, Mohn has shown that it is possible to combine modern leadership techniques with social concerns. He has demonstrated that efficiency and human concerns need not be incompatible, but should, in fact, be the basis for the productivity of the economic system. In this book he presents a strategy for partnership between employees and management, a reorganization of the three elements of business—capital, work, and management—and suggests how capitalism must be modernized to save the free-enterprise system.
