Gibson and Tesone management fads

Gibson and Tesone (2001) discuss management fads particularly in terms of how they develop and their life cycle. They offer five management fads as examples and illustrate how these management fads have evolved through the stages of their life cycle.

Describe a current management practice that you are familiar (not one of the five already discussed in this article) with from your courses or your own first-hand experience that you suspect may be a fad and illustrate in detail how you believe this practice has moved or is moving through the stages of its life cycle.
In what stage do you think the practice currently lies? Thoroughly explain.
Do you expect this practice will “go away, or slip from individual notoriety into the general content of management practices”? Thoroughly explain.
Think about the many changes that have occurred in the workplace due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What, if any, fads do you think have resulted? Do you think they will “stick?” Discuss.
