At one time an executive in a company had a genuine feeling, even pride, for what the company produced. But as the marketing revolution proliferated, the emphasis shifted from making good products and trying to sell them, to studying and manipulating the consumer and then satisfying his artificially stimulated needs. The manager, therefore, has become a channeler rather than a contributor.But in spite of extremely profitable corporations, many executives have discovered just how disposable they are at the first sign of a recession. The illusory quality of their skills becomes only too apparent when it is seen that they shape but do not contribute.With unassailable logic, numerous case histories, and a working knowledge of corporate structure, the authors present both personal and professional strategies with which the manager can become a conscious decision-maker employing winning, on- and off-the-job strategies to determine when and how to win the battle for more money and a better job- to reach a safe plateau- to take a new look at the application of strategy to the solution of human problems. Here also are entertaining and revealing sections devoted to the corporate wife--her problems and strategies- company-hopping executives- and of course Robert Townsends entertainingly mordant introduction. The Corporate Eunuch is, then, an invaluable contribution to executives who must learn not to channel but to contribute.
