Bruno Dyck -- Book Launch

Wednesday Feb 27 2013 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries (Palgrave Macmillan).

This book describes what management theory and practice looked like in the first century, uses this as a lens to examine what the Gospel of Luke says about management, and then draws out implications for today. The book demonstrates that management is a dominant theme in the Gospel, that its message is consistently counter-cultural, and that Luke contains a four-phase 'how to' process model to help readers implement change. Readers will acquire a new way to understand the Gospel as well as the moral foundations of contemporary management.

Bruno Dyck, a professor in the I.H. Asper School of Business, has co-authored a management textbook and has published research in leading scholarly journals on a variety of topics, including organizational change and learning, conventional and alternative approaches to management, and sustainability.

Management and the Gospel

- by Bruno Dyck

Hardcover $236.50 - Add to Cart

The goals of Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries may appear to be simple: it describes what management theory and practice looked like in the first century, uses this as a lens to examine what the Gospel of Luke says about management, and draws out implications for today. However, the book is quite profound in finding that management is a dominant theme in the Gospel, that its message is consistently counter-cultural, and that Luke contains a four-phase 'how to' process model to help readers to implement change. Readers will acquire a new way to understand the Gospel as well as the moral foundations of modern management.
