In Managing, Mintzberg calls attention to numerous popular but false views about the nature of managerial work 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.Simply Managing is the concentrated version of this book and comes in at a hundred pages shorter than the original. In Simply Managing Henry presents the meat of his arguments and distills the lessons learned in his research. Think of it as an expanded executive summary of the book, but one written by the author himself which maintains the integrity and feel of the original. There is one new section ,, written specifically for this edition where Mintzberg explains how to deal with technological demands and how managers use, misuse, and can make the best use of digital devices and other information technology.
