The rapidly increasing complexity of societal systems increases the need for professionalism in management—one must be able to function reliably regardless of increasing management complexity in the twenty-first century. Malik’s book is written for practitioners who bear responsibility for overall governance of the organizations and who are determined to carry out their tasks diligently, correctly, and well. It is intended, above all, for those who do not content themselves with fulfilling legal diligence duties, but who strive for entrepreneurial success—nothing less.
