Synopsis: 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!

About the Author: Henry Mintzberg is Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University and a founding partner of CoachingOurselves.com. He has won awards from many prestigious academic and practitioner institutions in management and is the author or coauthor of sixteen books. His next project is a series of electronic pamphlets entitled Rebalancing Society: Radical Renewal beyond Left, Right, and Center (see www.mintzberg.org).
