"A comprehensive conceptual framework for integrative corporate vision." Long Range Planning
From the Back Cover
This is the first comprehensive book to be published on the subject of intuition in management, a key element in business thinking and practice. The conventional management approach based on analytical problem solving is no longer adequate by itself to cope with accelerating change, complexity, uncertainty and conflict. The book presents a conceptual framework of intuition as well as extensive material on its application, especially to corporate vision building. Intuition is thought provoking and well-grounded, being based upon a global survey of more than 1,300 practising managers in nine countries - USA, UK, Austria, Brazil, France, India, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden.
This book is invaluable not only for managers and management educators, but also for those interested in enhancing their intuitive capacities. The reader will not only get clearer insights about the concept of intuition, but also learn processes for applying intuition to decision making in general and vision building in particular.

The book relies on lots of first-hand surveys from managers in nine different countries. If you're a bottom-line managerial type, this is one book to which you can point and say, "See, I'm not the only one who uses intuition. There are other successful executives and manager who use it too." The book's preface mentions that its survey found that 54% of managers said they relied equally on intuition and logic, 39% said they relied more on logic, and around 7.5% said they relied more upon intuition.
It's not a book to which you'd look for extensive information on how to do intuition. The authors make it a point to discuss that intuition, expressed during a shared process of corporate visioning, can be an excellent tool to relieve, channel and turn positive the anxiety produced by innovation. The study respondents mentioned in "Intuition: The New Frontier of Management" are just over 1,300 in number, although as of the writing of this review, you'll frequently find that number mis-quoted other articles on the Web.
Although the book's underpinnings are strong and international, I'd say the publisher's declaration mentioned in Amazon's quote from the back cover, "This is the first comprehensive book to be published on the subject of intuition in management," is an unsafe and perhaps incorrect statement. The back cover of mine doesn't claim that, so the publisher might have thought better of such a claim and revised its later covers. But, it *might* be the first English-language book assessing how different managers in different countries see and use intuition in the context of their own management structures and terminology.
The 1974 book, "Executive ESP," written by Dean, Mihalasky, Ostrander and Schroeder was quite comprehensive in its study and assessment of American managers from massive, multinational corporations - including IBM. Executive ESP was published by Prentice-Hall after a comprehensive, 10 year research project, with the blessings of the Parapsychological Association. It had positive reviews from International Business Digest, the New York Times' Sunday Financial Section and the New York Academy of Sciences. That doesn't make Intuition: The New Frontier in Management either more valuable or less, just different in approach. The book image you see came from me.
