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.
