Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Countering established business planning and design approaches, the authors, faculty members of the Harvard Business School, propose a more ``robust,'' action-oriented manager, characterized as flexible, pragmatic and skilled in the use of language. Research based on wide-ranging, on-site interviews examine, dissect and reconstruct the managerial dynamics in various companies. Although the authors, who use ``she'' and ``her'' as general referential pronoun, disclaim academic jargon, their theoretical, clause-ridden syntax often contradicts rather than highlights the book's central call for direct, effective communication. (Nov.)
Booknews
The authors, from Harvard Business School, argue that the basics of effective management are relatively timeless, in contrast to the ever proliferating business buzzwords and models. Using case studies of successful managers and organizations, they advocate an "action perspective" that highlights the judgment of the individual manager in confronting the constant challenges of organizational life.
