Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.Mintzberg calls attention to numerous popular but false views about the nature of managerial work, separates fact from folklore, and provides the best information yet published on what managers do and how they do it. He analyzes models, characteristics, and approaches to Managing . He examines commonalities and differences in Managing in various contexts, including business, government, health care, and social services. By shadowing 29 managers through a day in their lives, he reveals how Managing is affected by many factors -- including national and industry cultures, organizational differences, level of the manager in the organization, and personal styles -- and examines the various strategies that managers adopt to deal with these factors. Mintzberg then identifies the main conundrums or dilemmas that managers must wrestle with (such as delegating versus retaining control, balancing order and flexibility, and gathering more data versus needing to take action) and describes how managers deal with those conundrums. And he offers provocative and powerful new understandings of what makes managers effective and ineffective.

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"
