Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Pitcher embarked on an 8 year study of 15 chief executive officers. Her findings and recommendations are insightful and startling. Pitcher paints the portraits of the 3 types of leaders found in organizations: the Artist, the Craftsman and the Technocrat.
The Artist is people-oriented, open-minded, intuitive and visionary. The Craftsman is humane, dedicated, knowledgeable and wise. But the Technocrat is another story. Detail-oriented, rigid, methodical, and hardheaded, the Technocrat is the enemy of both the Artist and the Craftsman.
His analytical thinking leaves no room for fresh ideas and new pathways; he follows an uncompromising set of rules he believes are right.
The terrible irony is that too many of us have been conditioned to think the same way: that is why so many Technocrats, rather than Artists, are mistakenly admitted into the corridors of power. But Artists are necessary for successful management, and Craftsmen play an equally important role.
Technocrats, meanwhile undermine and ultimately destroy both. Artists, Craftsmen and Technocrats is a passionate appeal for us to develop the kind of leaders who can take us successfully into the 21st century. Read more Read less.

Artists, Craftsman And Technocrats: The Dreams, Realities And Illusions Of Leadership
By their very nature, designers and makers of wood products know what they want to do and where they want to go with their skills. Unfortunately this determination is often met with roadblocks that our society erects to dissuade the creative spirit. Are these barriers inevitable or are they products of the way we manage our private and public institutions? Such questions are addressed in Artists, Craftsmen and Technocrats, a book that employs the terminology of applied art and design to discuss the state of business management worldwide. Author Patricia Pitcher expands on an eight-year academic study of senior management at an unnamed international corporation and helps us to understand how bad and good management impinges on us all.
