Prof. Henry Mintzberg has been observing, advising and researching organizations since the early 1970s, and has had a profound influence on their study. The most recent book from the John Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies is Understanding Organizations…Finally! Structure in Sevens, and it synthesizes decades of analysis to understand the forces that shape organizations. “I have probably changed more than organizations have,” Mintzberg told Le Devoir. “I have more experience, and it’s much clearer in my head now.
