Mintzberg Wins Management Book of the Year

16th February 2011

Henry Mintzberg took the top gong at the inaugural CMI Management Book of the Year Awards at the British Library in London.

Prof Mintzberg’s latest work, Managing, was named overall Management Book of the Year, as well as winning the Practical Manager award. The winners in other categories were rEvolution by Bill Lucas, which took the award for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Richard Donkin’s The Future of Work, which was named Digital Management Book of the Year.

CMI chief executive Ruth Spellman told the audience that their aim was to identify that one book which all managers should read - the book that is most inspirational, practical and whose messages most readily translate into everyday management life.

Mintzberg is one of the outstanding management thinkers of this generation, and his latest work is the culmination of nearly 40 years of study.

The judging process began with shortlisting of the 145 entries by CMI members, before the final winners were picked by a panel including Prof Cary Cooper of Lancaster University Management School, Interbrand chair Rita Clifton and MT’s very own deputy editor Andrew Saunders.

Commenting on the winners, Saunders said ‘These are all books which have been selected by real managers looking for real enlightenment in their daily working lives. So it’s revealing that they have not been beguiled by the easy "ten-steps to success" type books which are so prevalent, opting instead for titles with harder but ultimately more durable and worthwhile messages.’
