About Irish Management 2.0:
The concept of the knowledge economy has changed the management paradigm for Irish managers. As our economy shifts from an over-reliance on construction over the coming years, the key challenge for all Irish businesses will lie in international competitiveness. How will Irish businesses compete on a global scale? The answer is through developing the breadth and depth of managerial excellence, increased levels of organisational flexibility, unleashing of individual creativity and building new collaborative organisational forms.
In order to hone managerial excellence in Ireland, Irish Management 2.0 outlines that there must be greater investment in managerial development at firm level, an alignment of management styles and paradigms to the knowledge economy, changes in managerial mindset and conceptualisation of organisations and competitive contexts and, importantly, in collaborations between Irish managers and business school academics, both nationally and internationally.
Irish Management 2.0 is an essential resource for students and practitioners, and for anyone interested in the future of Irish business.
