Insights on management, leadership, and effective organizations, from the experts at the best business schools
Skills and strategies for leading any organization to success
. . . comprehensive, up-to-date, and better than ever
" When the speculative bubble burst in 2000, it exposed a weakness in many firms-too much financial engineering and too little leadership and management. I strongly recommend this book to those managers who want to learn how to run well-managed organizations capable of weathering the inevitable turbulence brought about by intensive competition and rapid changes in markets and technology. In one book, highly regarded experts in the field of management provide you with the essential lessons you will need to succeed as a leader and manager."
-Michael Beer, Cahners-Rabb Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus
Harvard Business School and author of The Critical Path to Corporate Renewal
"For managers to be effective in today's complex world, they need to be learners as well as leaders. In this remarkable volume, a world-class collection of professors provides a curriculum for continuous management learning that combines leading-edge theory with practical advice. Every manager -from supervisor to CEO-should keep this book close at hand."
-Ron Ashkenas, Managing Partner, Robert H. Schaffer & Associates
