Book Review: Mary P. Follett

Mary P. Follett: Creating Democracy, Transforming Management by Professor Joan C. Tonn book is about Mary Follet’s life and ideas. It’s a biography, though, so there are probably other and better sources if you are interested in her ideas only. Mary didn’t have an easy life as a woman in the late nineteenth-century. It forced her into the role of an “outsider“. Maybe this worked to her advantage? She had to put extraordinary energy into empirical research. As a woman she didn’t have the luxury of offering undocumented observations and arguments.
