Summary

The World's Leading Business Minds on Today's Most Critical Challenge

Featuring Gary Hamel, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, John Kotter, Dan Pink, Lynda Gratton, Tammy Erickson, Doug Ready, and others

"Thinkers50 . . . is the global barometer ofthe best management thinking." -- Professor Vijay Govindarajan, Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College

Is management an art or a science? It is both--and much more. Management may be the single most important business discipline, and yet it is the most difficult to define.

Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove, creators of Thinkers50, begin by providing a thorough definition of management. Thinkers50 Management then reveals the most innovative management theories and insights from today's leading academics and practitioners. Chapters include:

Managing Processes Measuring Performance Managing Change Managing Talent Managing Globally Managing Emotionally Managing Millennials

Each book in the Thinkers50 series providesauthoritative explanations of the concepts, ideas, and practices that are making a difference today, including specific examples and cases drawn from the original sources.

Quality, forward-looking management doesn't just drive profits; it is a vital contribution to creating a healthy, peaceful society. "Management matters," the authors write. "It shapes the world. It is the vital lubricant that protects us from chaos. It is a calling and an enabling force."

Whether you're facing current management challenges in our fast-paced global economy or are aspiring to rise in the ranks to become a successful manager, Thinkers50 Management gives you the insight and knowledge youneed to excel in today's highly competitive business world.
