Description

The New Workplace Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the evidence available on how modern working practices and technology affect the people in organizations.

""Just-in-time"", ""total quality management"", ""lean manufacturing"", ""call centres"", ""team work"", ""empowerment"" - most people in business have heard these buzz words, often offered as a panacea to all profit ills. So why don't they always work? Can you combine them anyhow? If not, why not?

The New Workplace Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the evidence available on how modern working practices and technology affect the people in organizations. Within a broad psychological framework, leading experts examine how people work, their experience of work, the impact on productivity and performance and the human resource implications. Guidance is offered on a range of different methods, tools and practices that can be used to guide the design and implementation of modern working practices to ensure that pitfalls are avoided and the best possible results are obtained from new initiatives.
