Henry Mintzberg

Henry Mintzberg's website (official or not) http://www.henrymintzberg.com/
subjects Henry Mintzberg writes about Corporate Strategy, Leadership, General Management
Henry Mintzberg's profile I have been an academic most of my working life (after a stint in Operational Research at the Canadian National Railways). Currently I am Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University in Montreal, where I have been since graduating with a doctorate from MIT in 1968. (My undergraduate degree was from McGill in Mechanical Engineering.) I also hold the title of Visiting Scholar at INSEAD in Fontainbleau, France.

I devote myself largely to my writing and research, over the years especially about managerial work, strategy formation, and forms of organizing. I am completing a book called Developing Managers, not MBAs, and am preparing a series of essays to be published under the title Managing Quietly, also a short political pamphlet called Getting Past Smith and Marx: Toward a Balanced Society. (None of these will be available in any form for some time; information will appear here when they are. The pamphlet may be ready by the summer of 2002.)

I have worked for much of the past seven years or so, in collaboration with colleagues from Canada, England, France, India, and Japan, to develop new approaches to management education. The International Masters Program in Practicing Management has been running for five years now, and we are launching the Advanced Leadership Program, both rather novel ways to help managers learn from their own experience. I teach in these programs and supervise doctoral students. I rarely do speeches, however, except to convey a particular message or to visit a place I wish to see.

In recent years, I have shifted a bit toward more general writing. I have done some newspaper articles (listed under Articles), and I like to write short stories, some of which are available on this web site. I hope to publish a collection of them soon, entitled Reflection from the Window. And I have just completed a book called Why I Hate Flying, a spoof of all the foibles of flying, and of managing (published by Texere).

In all, I have written about 120 articles (listed with annotations on this site) and about 10 books (also so listed). Honors have included election as an Officer of the Order of Canada and l'Ordre national du Quebec, and selection as Distinguished Scholar for the year 2000 by the Academy of Management. Honorary degree and other awards are listed in the full C.V., which I call my Scorecard; you can also see a piece I wrote on my career up to the early 1990s (1993 autobiography).

I may spend my public life dealing with organizations, but I spend my private life escaping from them. This I do on a bicycle (preferably on quiet roads in Europe), up mountains, or in the Laurentian wilderness of Canada atop cross-country skis and in a canoe. I like to do this with my wife Sasha and my daughters Susie (now 32) and Lisa (now 30).
