About the topic
There are several things that are happening that make the perspective of Managing in a Horizontal Environment (Minding our Productivity, Quality, and Interdependence) relevant at this time. This includes the breakdown of globalization in business and the supply chains. This puts greater pressure on domestic markets, and domestic competition for companies. The advent of Artificial Intelligence is revolutionizing our concepts of business and information. There is a critical need to know what is fact and what is fiction or "fake news". This demands a cybernetic approach to examining issues and problems facing management now.
