Theories of Management expressed by the business schools are critically reviewed. The need change is seen to be urgent; Mechanistic models of human behaviour are no longer adequate. The author offers his own “eclectic” theory which recognises human complexity as opposed to categorisation of human types; replaces goals and demands by hopes and expectations; adopts a long‐range view. It is predicted that in the 1990s competition will be all persuasive, R & D will be more important, and workers will be more involved with decisions.
