Review:

“Many people fear that management schools are no longer fulfilling their fundamental mission; educating this generation’s global citizens and leaders. Eric Kessler’s Management Theory in Action goes a long way in bridging the gap between what universities are teaching and what managers need to know to successfully contribute to the world.”--Nancy J. Adler, S. Bronfman Chair in Management at McGill University and Author of International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior and Leadership Insight

“This book addresses a crucial topic -- how management theory may truly be useful to practice -- and does so in an innovative and engaging way that gives depth to the theory and helps practitioners develop skills to apply it and learn from it.  The book should be very helpful to a wide range of readers.”--Jean Bartunek,  Robert A. and Evelyn J. Ferris Chair in Organization Studies at Boston College and Past President of the Academy of Management

“This book should be required reading for freshly minted MBA graduates and seasoned business executives alike. Eric Kessler breathes life into what many of us have been taught in school and helps managers put their education to work by offering valuable insights into the pressing issues that they deal with on a daily basis.”--Bernie McSherry, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at Cuttone & Company and former Governor of the New York Stock Exchange

“I applaud Dr. Kessler for tackling the widening, frustrating gap between management theory and practice by challenging us to reflect on the root causes of our own effectiveness.  You will be delighted with the many practical lessons you take away from a fresh look at your own experiences, and from the experiences of the individuals spotlighted in these pages.”--Mary Beth Schroeder, Director of Training and Internal Communication at Affinion Group

“This book provides the keys to unlock some of the most difficult managerial challenges and enables the reader to increase their leadership capacity and sustain organizational performance.”--Diana Wong,  CEO & President of Sensei Change Associates, LLC
