Synopsis

A game-changing approach to management

Too often discussions of management practice focus exclusivelyon managing people and organizational issues. Rarely, however, dothey incorporate a discussion about technology or address all threedimensions in a balanced way. When they do, the result is gamechanging. In our hypercompetitive environment, those managers whoare outstanding at being plugged into their people, technology, andorganizational processes simultaneously excel at coming upwith effective business solutions.

The Plugged-In Manager makes the case that beingplugged-in—the ability to see choices across each of anorganization's dimensions of people, technology, and organizationalprocesses and then to mix them together into new and powerfulorganizational strategies, structures, and practices—may bethe most important capability a manager can develop to succeed inthe 21st century. Step by step Griffith shows you how to acquirethis ability.

  • Shows what it takes for business managers to succeed astechnology and organizations become more and more complex
  • Profiles exceptional leaders and organizations who areplugged-in, such as Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com
  • Offers a fresh look at management issues

Filled with compelling case studies and drawing on first-handinterviews, The Plugged-In Manager highlights this oftenneglected managerial capability and the costs of only focusing onone dimension rather than all three.
