Managers, not MBAs : a hard look at the soft practice of managing and management development by Henry Mintzberg ( Book )
33 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mintzberg asserts that conventional MBA classrooms overemphasize the science of management while ignoring its art and denigrating its craft, leaving a distorted impression of its practice. We need to get back to a more engaging style of management, to build stronger organizations, not bloated share prices. This calls for another approach to management education, whereby practicing managers learn from their own experience. We need to build the art and the craft back into management education, and into management itself." "Mintzberg examines what is wrong with our current system. Conventional MBA programs are mostly for young people with little or no experience. These are the wrong people. Programs to train them emphasize analysis and technique. These are the wrong ways. They leave graduates with the false impression that they have been trained as managers, which has had a corrupting effect on the practice of management as well as on our organizations and societies. These are the wrong consequences." "Mintzberg describes a very different approach to management education, which encourages practicing managers to learn from their own experience. No one can create a manager in a classroom. But existing managers can significantly improve their practice in a thoughtful classroom that makes use of that experience."--BOOK JACKET. Crump

The strategy process : concepts, contexts, and cases by Henry Mintzberg ( Book )
88 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For graduate level courses in Strategic Management, Business Policy, and Organizational Theory. With the goal of offering students something unique from other texts, this collection of readings, edited by Henry Mintzberg, is combined with cases from Quinn, Lampel, and Ghoshal. Together they present an up-to-date look at how actual companies act strategically and organize themselves. The authors provide the reader with a richness of theory, a richness of practice, and a strong basis for linkage between the two. Combining the case study approach with theory provides the accumulated benefits of many years of careful research and thought about management processes, and emphasizes the authors' belief that in this complex world of organizations a range of concepts is needed to cut through and illuminate particular aspects of that complexity
Strategy safari : a guided tour through the wilds of strategic management by Henry Mintzberg ( Book )
33 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Strategy making is considered the high point of managerial activity. But bombarded by fads and fixes, most managers have been groping blindly to get their arms around the proverbial elephant. Now Henry Mintzberg has teamed up with Bruce Ahlstrand and Joseph Lampel to create a powerful antidote: a comprehensive and illuminating - as well as colorful - tour through the fields of strategic management. Mintzberg, Ahlstrand, and Lampel have shaped each of ten different approaches into a coherent school of strategy formation. In the process, the authors clarify the enormous amount of confusion that exists." "The authors provide a thorough critique of the contributions and limitations of each school - from the design, planning, positioning, entrepreneurial, and cognitive schools to the learning, power, cultural, environmental, and configurational schools - culminating in how they might combine to reveal that elephant."--BOOK JACKET
