Description
The Essence of ManagingHenry 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!
