Insights from the new book by Prof Marius Ungerer

Work can be much more joyful and fulfilling than we think, but it requires courage from us to take responsibility when freedom is offered.

Join us for a very special Leader’s Angle Series event, as we delve into the thought-provoking new book by Prof Marius Ungerer, Afro-global management and innovation practices: Re-imagining work and workplaces. This new book explores management innovation as a core study field and arena for re-inventing and re-imagining how people in organisations could execute management activities such as planning, organising, leading and controlling for multiple stakeholder satisfaction and benefits.
