What Managers Do and Can Do BetterUnknown - 2013
The Essence of Managing: Henry Mintzberg appreciates that managers are busy people. So he has taken his classic book Managing, done some updating, and distilled its essence into a lean 176 pages of text. The essence of the book remains the same: what Mintzberg learned from observing twenty-nine managers in settings ranging from a refugee camp to a symphony orchestra. Simply Managing considers the intense dynamics of this job as well as its inescapable conundrums, for example: How is anyone supposed to think, let alone think ahead, in this frenetic job? Are leaders really more important than managers? Where has all the judgment gone? Is email destroying management practice? How can managers connect when their job disconnects them from what they are managing? If you read only one book about managing, this should be it!
