The Age Of Participation

Author: Patricia McLagan and Christo Nel

Publisher: Berrett Koehler, 1995

ISBN: Mick Yates

Summary:The book is a fascinating examination of what real participation means, in the workplace, and in society at large.

The book is a fascinating examination of what real participation means, in the workplace, and in society at large.  Very thorough history and analysis. A complete review of how it works, and how it doesn't .. and why we desperately need participative approaches. Connect organization theory, to ecology, and on to complexity science, and you've got the idea.

Pat also features on the "Leadership lecture circuit" (she's in the HRD Hall of Fame), and if she is on the program, check out the event.  But be prepared to have your mind stretched.
