Abstract

Purpose

To assist colleagues in tying current ideas to previously established practices. To generate discussion of the current relevance of students' understanding management history.

Design/methodology/approach

A review of representative classic theorists with an eye toward matching their behavior to that of current newsmakers. This is presented in a model to insure that like areas are compared.

Findings

The past is in the present. Although we may live in the day of “enlightened” “collaborative” management; there are still successful people who operate differently.

Practical implications

Readers of the paper will be able to make immediate application of the model.

Originality/value

Even presentation of the obvious has value. The model format is a dynamic document that others can use and improve upon.
