Title: MANAGER'S JOB: FOLKLORE AND FACT
Movie ID: VT3582
Movie Number: 3582
Description: Based on the article by Professor Henry Mintzberg. What does a manager really do? Organize? Plan? Coordinate? Control? That's just the beginning! Rusty Pierce, Product Manager at the Gillette Corporation, has recently been put in charge of a troubled line of personal care products. In order to rejuvenate the Silkience line, Rusty will have to manage her people and resources well. As she works to fulfill the required task. Mintzberg shows how accomplishment in the managerial role often has little to do with "traditional" managerial functions. To replace the classical theory. Mintzberg offers a method of looking at the manager's job that frees managers from the folklore that can keep them from doing their best work.
