Summary
"In this provocative book, organizational expert Brook Manville and Princeton classics professor Josiah Ober argue that ancient Athenian democracy provides an ingenious solution to the paradox facing every modern leader: how to ratchet up overall performance while nurturing the individuals whose knowledge and expertise fuel the firm." "Manville and Ober show that the Athenian approach to organizing people - as self-governing, knowledge-sharing citizens - was driven by three core elements: democratic values, governance structures, and participatory practices. This dynamic system served as the architecture that supported Athens' two-hundred-year reign of innovation and excellence - and the authors say it also holds the key to building a long-lasting, modern-day "company of citizens.""--Jacket
