26th January 2011
Business author and academic Professor Henry Mintzberg has received the Chartered Management Institute's Management Book of the Year gong.
Professor Mintzberg's Managing was named as the winner of the award last night (January 25th) in a ceremony hosted at the British Library in London, triumphing over a 15-strong shortlist of business and management books.
Managing was chosen as the winner of the overall Management Book of the Year accolade after scooping the top spot in the award's practical manager category.
The author is currently professor of management studies at McGill University in Montreal and has written works such as The Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning, Mintzberg on Management and Strategy Bites Back.
'I would be honoured by this lovely prize in any event. But it has special meaning for me because, of all the places I go in this world, none matches the UK for intellectual stimulation,' he commented.
The awards also saw Bill Lucas take the top prize in the innovation and entrepreneurship category for rEvolution: How to Thrive in Crazy Times, while Richard Donkin won the digital management book section with The Future of Work.
