Management: is it about taking charge, being systematic, driving change, making rational decisions? If you think these are the things managers do, this provocative book will make you think again. And if you already suspected that real management is much more messy than it appears in the clean and tidy theory, this book will confirm your suspicions with a vengeance!


Management? Its Not What You Think! is a captivating collection of articles, commentaries, poems, rants and more, selected by three renowned management writers who refuse to tread the conventional line. A whole range of delectable titbits will amuse you, challenge you, sometimes even anger you. This book will get you thinking and ultimately, help you bring a more thoughtful approach to your own management style.


We put in whatever we could find that feels interesting, provocative, and above all insightful.   The intention of this book is to get us all thinking again, opening up perspectives on this fascinating business of management, for managers themselves, those who work with managers, and anyone who aspires to join their ranks.


A must-read for all managers who think for themselves

Övrig information

"Henry Mintzberg is perhaps the world's premier management thinker" a Carlsberg-style endorsement of the author from Tom Peters, management guru Henry Mintzberg is one of today's best-known and most controversial management thinkers. Currently Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University in Montreal, he is always interesting and usually controversial and holds the management and strategy communities in thrall. Bruce Ahlstrand likes to prospect for strategy gems in unlikely places - from the game of Texas Hold'em to the Greek tragedies. He has a D.Phil. from Oxford University and a M.Sc. from the London School of Economics. Bruce is the author is currently a professor of management at Trent University in Ontario, Canada. Joe Lampel began his career believing that strategy is the answer, but has recently concluded that it may be the answer to the wrong question. He first began to suspect this terrible truth during the long journey that produced the first edition of Strategy Safari. Joe was awarded a PhD in management by McGill University for good behaviour.
