Henry Mintzberg, one of the top ten most influential management thinkers according to the Wall Street Journal, discusses what managers do, how they do it and how they can do better, speaking from direct observation and first-hand experience with professional managers across different industries, settings and posts.
This highly discerning account of the daily work of management addresses the major issues and how to deal with recurring dilemmas, covers the intense dynamics and extremely broad range of management jobs and provides pointers for becoming a more effective manager.
If Mintzberg is right that “we should be seeing managers as leaders, and leadership as management practiced well,” all readers will find in this book a clear picture of today's most challenging profession.
“Perhaps the world's premier management thinker.”
“One of the most original minds in management.”
“Henry Mintzberg's views are a breath of fresh air which can only encourage the good guys.”
