Denning has written an original and brilliant book which transforms "radical management" into doable and, more important, indispensable management. Also an indispensable read!

& author of the just published:
Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership.
This is a wonderful book. It’s like having an extended conversation with Steve Denning, who is one of today’s most acute and creative critics of traditional management thinking. You would ignore the ideas in this witty, candid and erudite book at your own peril. Denning shows how to re-invent management based on a more accurate and effective understanding of how humans work best together. This book makes a great text for any extended discussion about how we should be doing things.
Author of Working Knowledge and What’s the Big Idea?
Denning goes to the root of the management issues confronting companies today. Focusing on seven core principles, he lays out a pragmatic roadmap for shifting the corporation from a focus on scalable efficiency to a focus on delighting the customer and each other, while achieving even higher levels of productivity. In the process, he creates a space where we all can more fully achieve our potential.

The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management delivers. It delivers insight into why today’s broken institutions don’t work. It delivers the principles and practices that can reinvent them. It delivers powerful examples of organizations that are doing it —and some that aren’t — and it delivers the tools to help you start digging a new foundation.

CEO, Systematic Software
I’ve spent the last 35 years of my professional life bushwhacking my way towards what I now know, thanks to Steve Denning, is the nirvana called Radical Management. It is a place where delighting customers is the religion and creativity, passion and learning are revered. Denning’s Radical Management is the antidote to the greatest disease in the workplace today, mental resignation due to lack of purpose. Radical Management should be required reading for anyone entering the work force or looking to reignite their inner bushwhacker!
The official publication date of the book is October 25, 2010. You can place an advance order now at Amazon here.
