And looking more widely, there is a creeping disenchantment with management as a profession: surveys show that managers generate less respect than lawyers and bankers in the eyes of the general public, and there are few if any positive role models for management."Change isn't just for the rank-and-file anymore; it's coming for you. Instant access to information and global resources have changed the world we live and work in. Julian Birkinshaw shows that 19th century industrial management won't work in a 21st century fluid workplace. Read this, or prepare to be 'game-changed' by someone who has." --Jack Hughes, CEO, TopCoder"Technological and social changes are having an enormous impact on the world of business, and on the way companies are managed. In this book, Julian Birkinshaw provides a roadmap for making sense of how the world of management is changing, and he provides useful advice for companies who want to harness the potential that Web 2.0 has to offer." --PV Kannan, CEO, 24/7 Customer"Julian Birkinshaw helps us look beyond our legacy management practices, and imagine bold new ways of leading, managing and organizing. Filled with mind-expanding examples, Reinventing Management is a must read for managers who want to build an organization that's truly fit for the future." --Gary Hamel, bestselling author of The Future of Management...

Reinventing Management: Smarter Choices for Getting Work Done Reviews
Neznášať manažérov, to je také jednoduché. Ešte jednoduchšie je neznášať tú zjednodušenú predstavu o organizovaní, motivovaní, plánovaní a hodnotení práce. Korporátne fuj, však? Táto kniha vychádza z tézy, že buzz okolo leadershipu organizácie a firemné kultúry ďaleko neposunie. Hlavne ak znamená rezignovanie na riadenie, plánovanie a všetko "nudné" okolo toho. Birkinshaw dokonca tvrdí, že za krízu vo finančnom sektore do veľkej miery mohlo práve zlyhanie managementu. Ak ste videli film Big Short, tak si viete, čo tým myslí. Birkinshaw vám ukáže, ako rôzne veľké firmy experimentujú sami so sebou, ako rôzne typy aktérov môžu zmeny v riadení, plánovaní či motivovaní iniciovať a mnoho iného. A tak vás nabije inšpiráciou, otázkami, v niečom vyvolá nesúhlas. To všetko je dobre napísané a teda sa málo podobá na "typické" manažérske knihy. Tak, čo zmeníte na svojom pracovisku vy?
Book 1 for 2011 (1 of 12) - I hope.OK....so after 30 days I am on track for a book a month. Call me in 10 and see how I am doing.Reinventing Management was ok, but I think the title oversells it a bit. There is nothing really new or inventive presented in this book other than reinforcing that leadership is NOT management.Over the last 15+ years of my career the mantra is Leadership will save us! Shining the light on the path to our issue free future. Ummm, no. Now I am not saying all leaders are bad, I consider my self to be a good one. What I am saying is that leadership is only part of the equation. A lot of leaders (or a more entertaining title now being used are thought leaders) actually abdicate the responsibility for getting the team across the finish line. I thought of where we should go - its up to someone else to work the details on how to get there. This explains why so many "leaders" are so distanced from the pack that the pack can not figure out how to follow the leader. This is where a good manager steps up to lay the bread crumb trail for the natives so we all end up on the same island."Enlightenment must come little by little - otherwise it would overwhelm." ~Idries ShahA little quote that I picked up that kinda captures the sentiment I am trying to show. Leaders are often the big thinkers that make what appears to be leaps of faith. But the actuality is that they are able to piece together the puzzle in fewer steps than the average joe. This is the importance of true management in the machines of corporate organizations. Managers are the translators of the leaps into digestible increments for the masses. This is certainly not to say the masses can not get there on their own, but the manager acts as a facilitator to avoid an excess of missteps along the way.So the next time you look at a manager, director, VP, or President try to assess which one they are - leader or manager (or both) based on how I've defined it above. I think you will be surprised who falls into which bucket. And I think you will be even more surprised to find that this will changed based on the situation.This book provides a fairly clear academic / clinical discussion on management and its metrics and dimensions, but provides a few creative ideas on management techniques - InnovationJams being one way of crowd sourcing solutions to company issues.Worth your time to read. Enjoy.
A book for anyone managing people irrespective of their work or field. An excellent read for all managers in our part of the world (Middle East) where the prevailing management style is very traditional.
Insightful. Deep. Honest. This book will let you discover not only what kind of organization you work for but also whether this organization has the right ability to be part of the Champs.
