Randall covers 16 of the sacred cows of business as myths: the myth of communication, the myth of the organization chart, and the myth of the management committee. A selected quote (there are hundreds more): Are we too tolerant of the top man who justifies a swollen salary with the magic word incentive? Top-heavy executive pay reflects a distorted view of human relations. Worse still, it can dangerously undermine public confidence in our system. The Folklore of Management is a management classic in the vein of The Peter Principle, Up the Organization, and Games Mother Never Taught You. It also includes a new foreword by Ken Iverson of Nucor Steel.
