Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary This book is an unusual professional biography, providing the reader with a highly personalized account of the author's practical career as a systems consultant, a hands-on trainer and a CEO in manpower and institutional development spanning five decades and three continents. In recounting his life's experiences, Professor Lynton examines episodes from actual work done, each in three phases: how did the work come about; what actually took place by way of involvement, interventions (planned and unplanned) and outcomes; and what with hindsight might be done better now in similar circumstances. This book is for practitioners, consultants and students of management, organizational development, behavioral sciences, social work, community development, institution-building and human resources development.
