Many theories of management have been published, gone into fashion and fallen out again. Most have some value, none of them are always the right approach whatever the context. What are the lessons to be learnt from former trends? What is needed for effective management and leadership in the 21st century, in a post-pandemic world? Can we afford to continue leading and managing our teams tomorrow in the same way we did yesterday?

The presentation focuses on the changing frontiers for knowledge and information workers, at every level of management (self management, team leader, project manager, CEO...)
