Our board member David Creelman has written a commentary on Henry Mintzberg’s new book, Managing. You can find David’s discussion of this book here. Dr. Mintzberg is a professor at the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University in Montreal and a frequent contributor to publications like the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Fast Company, etc.
