Show synopsis Humanistic Management by Teamwork (HMBT) is a dynamic leadership paradigm that emphasizes employee development and the use of a team approach for executing organizational and mission-oriented strategies. In this book it is described in relation to global forces, megatrends, and national imperatives that influence the making of academic or university libraries. The authors discuss the need for reshaping the organization and implementing the team-based organizational design, along with issues of staffing, communication, supervision, and performance appraisal. Concrete examples are given to illustrate how HMBT works in actual library settings. Bibliographies at the end of each chapter provide further resources for study. The methods presented readily afford the opportunity for operational ownership, self-renewal, and the realization of continuous managerial excellence. The authors show how, with these powerful techniques, libraries can successfully meet the challenges of the future.
