International designers imagine Utopia at Somerset House
Bos approached this maturing fashion debate from the perspective of philosophy. The book has a utopian element which always attracts me, the impossible dream of what might be, despite dystopia being far more evident than utopia. But he questions the quest for utopia offering us his unique way into management fashion. We tend to write and talk about leaders as managers of meaning. Here we get an alternative, Bos writes about the construction of leadership authority, but he also writes about the corrosion of authority informed by the writings of Bruce Lincoln.
So the authority of leaders requires the corrosion of authority of others.

We had to doubt the capabilities of managers before we could believe in leaders. I am not encouraging such a position and neither was Bos , but it helps us to understand the shift from managers to leaders. This shift was never empirically informed it was a question of staging. Unfortunately, most people believe that this shift was empirically informed.
This line of reasoning appears to have implications for organizational change theories and practices. Those into appreciative inquiry will not like this, but how do we avoid utopian tendencies in our theories and practices of organizational change? Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Company.

Are the disseminators of management fashion undermining the professional dedication of managers? Is the practitioner's desire to follow management fashion merely derisory?
Or is there some positive value to be gained from management fashion? Here, the author suggests that fashion can be an important weapon in the struggle against the utopian tendencies that pervade management thinking. He argues that the disseminators of management fashion might help us to resist the kind of moral fanaticism which he thinks is troubling in more rationalist or utopian appreciation of what is happening organizations.
