Look up one or two articles on current trends or fads in management. Then find one or two articles on a management fad from several years ago. Finally, use an internet search engine to locate information on both the current and previous fads.
1. How were these fads used in organizations? Use real examples from your readings.
2. Why do you think the fads were adopted? To what extent were the fads adopted to truly improve productivity and morale versus the company’s desire to appear current in its management techniques compared to the competition?
3. Give an example in which a fad did not work as expected. Explain the reason it did not work.
