Whether you subscribe to the philosophy that management is an art and not a science or that it’s a science composed of best practices and systemic steps, one thing is for sure: there is no one easy way to describe what managers do. In this inspiring book, Henry Mintzberg, one of today’s most respected and controversial thinkers on management, joins forces with other leading business figures to provide a provocative mix of writing on management that inspires laughter as much as it brings forth tears (for poor old management itself!). Management? It’s Not What You Think! gets readers thinking as they never have before on topics including management terminology and buzzwords, myths and maxims, MBAs, management fads, leadership, strategy, and much more. With wit, intrigue, and plenty of food for thought, Mintzberg presents articles, book and journal excerpts, letters, web selections, and musings that will spark debate in managers of all types and experiences and renew their interest in doing what they do best--managing.
