"A response to the clinical paradigm"
Manfred Kets de Vries was invited by the senior editors of the European Management Journal and the Academy of Management Executive to be the first European to participate to the new Crosstalk feature of these journals. In engaging in this discussion, he was paired with the well-known management scholar, Professor Edgar Schein. These writings served as the basis for the discussion of the concept of the clinical paradigm and its contribution to organizational analysis. This article was written in response to The Clinical Paradigm: Manfred Kets de Vries Reflections on Organizational Therapy.
