A leading authority on business strategy, Henry Mintzberg is Professor of Management at McGill University in Montreal, Canada and a Visiting Scholar at INSEAD in Fontainbleau, France. His entire career has focused on understanding how big business make decisions. In 2009 and 2007 Thinkers 50, the global ranking of management gurus, placed him among the list of most influential thinkers.

Professor Mintzberg has devoted himself largely to writing and research about managerial work, strategy formation, and forms of organizing. In 2004 he published Managers Not MBAs, in 2007, Tracking Strategies and in 2009 Managing.

In collaboration with colleagues from Canada, England, France, India, and Japan, Mintzberg has worked for much of the past decade to develop new approaches to management education and development. The International Masters in Practicing Management has been running since 1996; the Advanced Leadership Program and the International Masters for Health Leadership have been running since 2006. All are rather novel ways to help managers learn from their own experience.

In 2007, along with Phil LeNier, Sasha Sadilova, and Jonathan Gosling, Mintzberg created CoachingOurselves.com, which brings all these efforts to natural fruition: practicing managers developing themselves in small groups. Mintzberg teaches in these programs and supervises doctoral students.

In all, Professor Mintzberg has published about 150 articles and 15 books. Honors have included election as an Officer of the Order of Canada and of l′Ordre national du Quebec, selection as Distinguished Scholar for the year 2000 by the Academy of Management, and two McKinsey prizes for articles in the Harvard Business Review.

Managing
Mintzberg calls attention to numerous popular but false views about the nature of managerial work, separates fact from folklore, and provides the best information yet published on what managers do and how they do it. He analyzes models, characteristics, and approaches to managing. He examines commonalities and differences in managing in various contexts, including business, government, health care, and social services.

By shadowing 29 managers through a day in their lives, he reveals how managing is affected by many factors — including national and industry cultures, organizational differences, level of the manager in the organization, and personal styles — and examines the various strategies that managers adopt to deal with these factors.

Mintzberg then identifies the main "conundrums" or dilemmas that managers must wrestle with (such as delegating versus retaining control, balancing order and flexibility, and gathering more data versus needing to take action) and describes how managers deal with those conundrums. And he offers provocative and powerful new understandings of what makes managers effective and ineffective.

Strategy Bites Back
Strategy Bites Back is the antidote to conventional strategy books — and conventional strategy formation. Edited by the legendary Henry Mintzberg, it contains contributions from everyone from Gary Hamel to Napoleon Bonaparte, Michael Porter to Hans Christian Andersen: essays, poems, case studies, cartoons, whatever it takes to ′free your mind′ and unleash the crucial emotional side of strategy formation.

Coverage includes: strategy and brinkmanship, culture, seduction; strategy lessons from your mother, from beehives, chess grandmasters, even the National Zoo. Along the way, Mintzberg and his colleagues take on the sacred cows and entrenched beliefs that keep strategists from recognizing their most powerful options.

Strategy Bites Back doesn′t just make strategy fun: it helps define strategies that offer huge upsides and real inspiration.

Managers Not MBAs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Development
Mintzberg explains in detail how to cultivate balanced, dedicated managers who practice a style that can be called "engaging," and how they can transform the business world and, ultimately, society.

Henry Mintzberg′s presentations provide the opportunity to enhance managerial and leadership skills.
