Do open-floor plans really work – or do they make employees miserable? Are there companies, which really put their employees’ welfare first, and their clients second? Are annual performance reviews really necessary?

Dr. David Burkus is a highly regarded and increasingly influential business school professor who challenges many of the long-established principles of business management. Drawing on decades of research, Burkus has found that not only are many of our fundamental management practices wrong and misguided, but they can be downright counter-productive.

And these days, the best companies are already breaking the old rules.  At Volkswagen, email is now restricted to certain hours, so that employees can work without distraction. Netflix no longer has a standard vacation policy of 2-3 weeks, but instructs employees to take off as much time as they feel they need. At Morningstar Farms there are no managers at all—the employees govern themselves. And at Zappos, new employees are given the option to quit and get paid for it.

The revolutionary insights Burkus reveals in Under New Management are convincing companies to leave behind decades-old management practices and to implement new ways to enhance productivity and morale.
