MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

There have been calls at various times for machines and numbers to totally control the business world at the expense of the humanities. But each time such movements have surfaced, opposite pulls have called for a greater focus on talent management. Prime example of this would be the 1930s when Elton Mayo introduced the concept of human resources, where workers were treated with dignity and care. This was in stark contrast to the earlier principles of scientific management introduced by Frederick Taylor. Similarly, after the 2008 economic crisis, there were calls for humanizing businesses. Underprepared overachievers in much contrast to the insecure overachievers, do not have patience. So, they try to derive business solutions for everything. For more holistic solutions, such people need to make use of literature, philosophy and the social sciences.
