The speaker leads us into the historical development of management thinking from the 17th century until today. He outlines the changes and "paradigm shifts" that took place. He then illustrates the vital importance of addressing present management challenges from a complexity point of view, on the basis of numerous personal experiences with consultancy work he has executed.
In short, this lecture will give you an indispensable addition to the management techniques that you have already studied at the time at Vlerick.
