Henry Mintzberg

I currently hold the Cleghorn Professorship of Management Studies at McGill University; the Desautels Faculty of Management. I've been an academic most of my working life.

In recent years, I have shifted toward more general writing, including commentaries. In all, I have published about 170 articles, and 17 books.
