Together in the Past and Future of the Now

  • Ralph Stacey
  • Norbert Elias


Considering the work of Ralph Stacey is an even larger project than the discussion of my earlier three exemplars, because it seems to me that it makes more sense to think of a Stacey “school” or community rather than of one individual. Ralph Stacey is Director of the Complexity and Management Center at the Business School of the University of Hertfordshire and is also Director of the Doctor of Management program run by the Center. Around Stacey are gathered a number of other writer-practitioners, notably Douglas Griffin and Patricia Shaw. Increasingly, graduates of and participants in the Doctor of Management program are also publishing. Together, this group is now producing a substantial body of written work.
