Critique of “Workers Control” and More: On Management Principles and Frameworks

Critique of “Workers Control” and More: On Management Principles and Frameworks

“No one disputes the importance of keeping reliable records but Lenin's identification of workers' control in a 'workers' state', with the function of accountancy (i.e. checking the implementation of decisions taken by others) is extremely revealing.

Institutions: Organizational Fetishes vs. Organizational Focus

Posted 1st December 2011 at 01:53 by Die Neue Zeit
