The main purpose and question is the matter of forming the fundamentals of "management 2.0" in the context of current problems in management practice. "The management 2.0" is being treated as an innovative concept of management, created mainly (but not solely) as a response to the development of IT technologies, especially the 2.0 Internet
... 2.0 Internet version. How adequate is this concept today? Does it exist in management practice? Studies of the literature on the matter, including the recent statements given by the concept creators especially Gary Hamel's, leads to the conclusion that the term "Management 2.0" is rarely mentioned. That being said, this term is not yet replaced by the idea of "Management 3.0", which hasn't been created, or by any other versions marked with respect to the popular classification of internet programs evolution. Does this mean that the concept has ceased to exist? Or maybe it did not become popular enough? Have there been new concepts created which took the place of "the new newest thing" on the market of management in theory and practice?

Generally speaking, it may be interesting and attractive idea of reconstructing the fundamentals of management, more adequate to the digital economy conditions.
