Product Details


“One of the most original minds in management.”
—Fast Company

“Henry Mintzberg's views are a breath of fresh air which can only encourage the good guys.”
The Observer

“Over the years I have asked many groups of managers what happened the day they became managers. First I get puzzled looks and then shrugs. Nothing, they report. You are supposed to figure it out—like sex, I suppose, usually with the same dire initial consequences. And from there, while we can find plenty of effective managers—if we can figure out what that means—we see a great deal of dysfunctional and often bizarre managerial behavior too. The costs are immense.”
Henry Mintzberg
