Managen
32,90 € *

Managen beleuchtet den vielleicht wichtigsten Job, den es gibt. Seine Dynamik, seine Vielfalt, seine Rätsel und wie Manager ihn effektiv und gut beherrschen. Managen ist eine dynamische Tätigkeit, kein statische Wissenschaft. Mintzberg zeigt, dass Manager vielfach als überlegte und systematische Planer idealisiert werden und diesem Anspruch gar nicht gerecht werden können. Er skizziert Management als dynamischen Prozess. Mintzberg gilt als Enfant terrible unter den Managementvordenkern. Eine seiner Thesen: Management und Leadership sind Bestandteile des gleichen Jobs. Manager, die keine Leader sind, sind langweilig. Und Leader, die nicht managen, wissen nichts vom Geschäft. Die Trennung von Management und Leadership ist Unsinn. Mintzberg fordert auf zu einer längst überfälligen Diskussion über modernes Management: Wie kann man managen, wenn verlässliche Daten fehlen. Wie kann man eine Balance herstellen zwischen notwendiger Veränderung und Kontinuität? Wie kann man Dinge durchdenken, wenn die Zeit dazu fehlt? Effektive Manager sind nicht frei von Fehler, aber sie treffen die in der jeweiligen Situation bestmöglichen Entscheidungen.

Why is it so hard to make lasting changes in our companies, in our communities, and in our own lives? The primary obstacle is a conflict that´s built into our brains, say Chip and Dan Heath, authors of the critically acclaimed bestseller Made to Stick. Psychologists have discovered that our minds are ruled by two different systems - the rational mind and the emotional mind - that compete for control. The rational mind wants a great beach body; the emotional mind wants that Oreo cookie. The rational mind wants to change something at work; the emotional mind loves the comfort of the existing routine. This tension can doom a change effort - but if it is overcome, change can come quickly. In Switch, the Heaths show how everyday people - employees and managers, parents and nurses - have united both minds and, as a result, achieved dramatic results: - The lowly medical interns who managed to defeat an entrenched, decades-old medical practice that was endangering patients - The home-organizing guru who developed a simple technique for overcoming the dread of housekeeping - The manager who transformed a lackadaisical customer-support team into service zealots by removing a standard tool of customer service In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

The Culture Map

Whether you work in a home office or abroad, business success in our ever more globalized and virtual world requires the skills to navigate through cultural differences and decode cultures foreign to your own. Renowned expert Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain where people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together.When you have Americans who precede anything negative with three nice comments French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans who get straight to the point ( your presentation was simply awful´´) Latin Americans and Asians who are steeped in hierarchy Scandinavians who think the best boss is just one of the crowd,the result can be, well, sometimes interesting, even funny, but often disastrous.Even with English as a global language, it´s easy to fall into cultural traps that endanger careers and sink deals when, say, a Brazilian manager tries to fathom how his Chinese suppliers really get things done, or an American team leader tries to get a handle on the intra-team dynamics between his Russian and Indian team members.In The Culture Map , Erin Meyer provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business. She combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice for succeeding in a global world.
