A novel approach to management.
This is a business book written in the form of a novel. It makes accessible two leading theories in current business management: Levels Theory, developed by Elliott Jacques, and the Seven-S model developed by McKinsey's Bob Waterman.
Main character Jim takes a new, high-powered bank job in which his brief is to double financial growth. He begins a romance with another divisional head, Jane, whose management approach is the opposite to Jim's. As the story evolves, it offers a real-world example of how these two theories can be combined in practice to produce the most satisfactory outcomes for both the business and its employees.
