Economic Crisis Paves Way for a New Management Model - But is the United States Being Left Behind? International Universities Quick to Teach New Management Model While US Falls Behind

Dr. Adizes, the renowned management guru, teaches managers how to strengthen their organizations so that they can thrive in times of crisis. While internationally his teaching are gaining broad acceptance, he is a relative unknown in the United States.

    CARPINTERIA, CA, February 28, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Adizes, a world renowned management guru, teaches executives and political leaders how to strengthen their organizations so that they can thrive in times of crisis. His management theories, known as the Adizes methodology, have been accredited with helping countless organizations become leaders in their field. While internationally his teaching are gaining broad acceptance and can be considered main stream, he is a relative unknown in the United States. Is the United States being left behind in the retooling of management theory for the business world of the future?

Dr. Adizes' teachings are often controversial and since 1977 he has been telling top executives and political leaders that problems are healthy, and that conflict should be legitimized and harnessed, not avoided. He teaches that organizations should not adapt but rather pro-act and that there is no perfect manager.
He is a vocal critic of the "American" approach to management education and after giving up his tenure as a professor at UCLA, he has lead a crusade to change the way management is viewed and taught.

Having been accredited with helping the Franklin Mint, USA grow from $12 million in sales to over $750 million without any outside financing; Gerolymatos Group of Companies, Greece grow from EUR5 million to EUR150 million in sales; Domino's Pizza grow from $150 million to $1.5 billion in sales in seven years; Grupo Salinas, Mexico grow from $261 million in capitalization in 1992 to $3.5 billion in 2002..... Dr. Adizes is in many ways a great success, but when it comes to changing the way management is viewed and taught in the United States, his teachings have fallen on deft ears, and he still struggles to gain main stream acceptance.
Yet, universities outside of the United States have begun to listen. He has been granted 9 honorary doctorates from leading universities across Europe and professors from around the globe are teaching the "Basic Conceptual Foundations of the Adizes Methodology," as a part of courses in subjects as varied as Medicine, Political Science, Economics, Law, Psychology, Sociology, History and even The Performing Arts.

Dr. Adizes has written 10 books which have been translated into 19 languages. He has also consulted to multiple heads of state and some of the world's largest organizations. He is considered a leader in the field of change management.

Adizes is a worldwide consulting organization serving clients who are involved in many diverse industries, and range in size from start-ups to members of the Global 100. At the heart of the organization is the Adizes Institute where research, licensing and training in the Adizes Methodology is conducted.
