If you watch one video this weekend, watch Henry Mintzberg on the “management crisis”. He is not the only management guru talking about the management crisis – Hamel is too. I was glad to see Mintzberg challenge the trite distinction between management and leadership. I’ve long held we do too little to develop the organizational acumen of young people – a point amply made by R. Katz.
Do Mintzberg’s comments apply to firms in the UK? What are the issues here?
