Managers Not MBAs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Management Development Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirty years ago, Mintzberg's bestseller ""The Nature of Managerial Work sought to dispel the myths of the disconnected, overly analytical manager by observing a week in the lives of five chief executives. In a sense, ""Managers Not MBAs is the sequel, delving as it does into current practice and the need for developing much better managers. The book examines what is wrong with both management education and management itself, and how both could be changed. Mintzberg explores the concept of management as a practice blending craft (experience) with art (insight) and some science (analysis). Conventional education in this realm, he says, encourages a ""calculating"" approach by overemphasizing the science, and a ""heroic"" approach by overstressing the art. Mintzberg argues instead for training balanced, dedicated managers who practice an ""engaging"" style, believing that their purpose is to leave behind stronger organizations, not just higher share prices.

Synopsis:

Mintzberg explains in detail how to cultivate balanced, dedicated managers who practice a style that can be called ""engaging,"" and how they can transform the business world and, ultimately, society.

Synopsis:

The trouble with ""management"" education, says author Henry Mintzberg, is that it is business education, and leaves a distorted impression of management. In Managers Not MBAs, he offers a new definition of management as a blend of craft (experience), art (insight), and science (analysis). An education that overemphasizes science encourages a style of managing the author calls ""calculating,"" or if the graduates believe themselves to be artists, the related style ""heroic."" According to the book, neither heroes nor technocrats in positions of influence are useful - what's really needed are balanced, dedicated people who practice a style that can be called ""engaging."" Such people believe their purpose is to leave behind stronger organizations, not just higher share prices. Managers Not MBAs explains in detail how to cultivate such managers, and how they can transform the business world and, ultimately, society.
