Profile Information

What brings you to Follett?
In 2004, I wrote a book entitled "The CEO Challenge." In doing research for this book, I went back to the 1850's when formal management was first "born." I then re-traced who I thought were the major pioneers that have shaped management thought and action over the past 150 years.

Mary Parker Follett definitely falls into the category of a management pioneer. She was one of the first to bring the human dimension of management into play. She also pioneered what is termed today "Executive Coaching."

Peter Drucker has also stated she was way ahead of her time.

So, I am very interested in learning more about her life and her influence on field of management.

One more thought, she also pioneered the concept of integration and differences in management...which is very applicable to management in the 21t century!
