In 1994 publiceert hij baanbrekend werk in het boek The Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning. Tot op de dag van vandaag maken vele organisaties wijs gebruikt van deze kennis ten behoeve van hun strategische planning.

Een ander populair boek wat Mintzberg in 2004 heeft gepubliceerd is Managers not MBA’s. Hierin pleit hij voor meer nadruk op postdoctoraal programma’s.

Deze programma’s worden veelal gevolgd door managers uit de praktijk (in plaats van studenten met weinig echte wereld ervaring). Het uitgangspunt bij dit soort programma’s is action learning aan de hand van inzichten uit hun eigen problemen en ervaringen.

Bekende modellen en theorieën van hem zijn de 10 managementrollen en de 5P Strategie.

bekende quotes

  1. “Companies are communities. There’s a spirit of working together. Communities are not a place where a few people allow themselves to be singled out as solely responsible for success.”
  2. “Managers who don’t lead are quite discouraging, but leaders who don’t manage don’t know what’s going on. It’s a phony separation that people are making between the two.”
  3. “Technologies tend to undermine community and encourage individualism.”
  4. “If the private sectors are about markets and the public sectors are about governments, then the plural sector is about communities.”
  5. “This obsession with leadership… It’s not neutral; it’s American, this idea of the heroic leader who comes in on a white horse to save the day. I think it’s killing American companies.”
  6. “We’re all flawed, but basically, effective managers are people whose flaws are not fatal under the circumstances. Maybe the best managers are simply ordinary, healthy people who aren’t too screwed up.”
  7. “Basically, managing is about influencing action. Managing is about helping organizations and units to get things done, which means action. Sometimes, managers manage actions directly. They fight fires. They manage projects. They negotiate contracts.”
  8. “Strategy making needs to function beyond the boxes to encourage the informal learning that produces new perspectives and new combinations… Once managers understand this, they can avoid other costly misadventures caused by applying formal techniques, without judgement and intuition, to problem solving.”
  9. “Effective managing therefore happens where art, craft, and science meet. But in a classroom of students without managerial experience, these have no place to meet — there is nothing to do.”
  10. “Theory is a dirty word in some managerial quarters. That is rather curious, because all of us, managers especially, can no more get along without theories than libraries can get along without catalogs — and for the same reason: theories help us make sense of incoming information.”
