Managers Not MBAs
A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Management Development
About the Summary
According to Professor Henry Mintzberg, the current MBA system ensures that the wrong people will get educated in the wrong way with the wrong consequences. There is a better way. Mintzberg has designed a program, the International Masters in Practicing Management, that addresses many of the problems associated with traditional programs that profess to develop managers, but instead produce analysts ready to apply one-size-fits-all techniques no matter the context. By integrating reflective, analytical, worldly, collaborative, and action mindsets, this philosophy will not only improve managers, but also their organizations and society.
