What Management Is, by Joan Magretta

Posted: March 3, 2003 at 3:49 pm in management, nonfiction

This book, recommended by The
Economist
, is a short treatise on the basics of management. The
author, a former editor of the Harvard Business Review, seeks to
distill management down to its most elementary components, which she
breaks down into Design (“Why People Work Together and How”), and
Execution (“Making it Happen”). I didn’t really feel that there were
any earth-shattering insights in here, but it was a good summary of
modern-day management best practices. And a useful reference if I
ever want to explain to a bad manager how their tactics are
sub-optimal.
