Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To borrow a line from a popular commercial, "When Rosabeth Moss Kanter talks, people listen." A former editor of the Harvard Business Review and the author of numerous books on management (e.g., World Class, LJ 8/95), Kanter is a renowned management theorist. Her latest work is a compilation of articles previously published in the Review on such subjects as strategy, innovation, and leadership. While the articles themselves have stood the test of time, the thematic arrangement (e.g., leading change, values and purpose, partnerships) adds yet another dimension. Kanter presents a progressively orthodox view of cutting-edge managerial thought that is thoroughly grounded in present reality. She conveys the complexity of situations and solutions without the proscriptions often encountered in management texts. Recommended for business collections.Steven Silkunas, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority, Philadelphia
Booknews
A collection of 25 articles Kanter wrote for the over a decade and a half and framing essays she wrote as editor from 1989 to 1992. She discusses strategy, innovation, customer focus, global trends, leadership for change, strategic alliances, compensation systems, and community responsibility. They distill her insistence that values and people are the foundation of business success. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
