Overview

In Search of the Lost Grail of Middle Management: The Renaissance of Middle Managers

In most management books, middle management is treated as a right of passage to CEO. Today's managers are educated, trained, and inspired from the CEO's perspective. The career and art of middle management is lost in the pursuit of one's ambition for the top spot. The Lost Grail of Middle Management looks back and then forward to the key role of middle managers. The book offers a fresh look at management after the Japanese and team-managed experiments of the 1980s and 1990s. The book also offers a fresh approach using the analogy of knighthood and the lost grail. This parable approach allows for an interesting method to becoming and enjoying middle management as a career.
