Simply Managing


Henry Mintzberg appreciates that managers are busy people. So he has taken his classic book Managing, done some updating, and distilled its essence into a lean 176 pages of text.


The essence of the book remains the same: what Mintzberg learned from observing 29 managers in business, government, and NGOs, in settings ranging from a refugee camp to a symphony orchestra. 


Simply Managing considers the intense dynamics of this job as well as its inescapable conundrums, for example:

  • How is anyone supposed to think, let alone think ahead, in this frenetic job?
  • Are leaders really more important than managers/
  • Where has all the judgment gone/
  • Is e-mail destroying management practice?
  • How can managers connect when their job disconnects them from what they are managing?
