Abstract

What does a manager do most days? If your answer involves going to meetings, revising budgets, and checking and writing emails, you will greatly benefit from reading about one manager who changed this work pattern. She revamped her calendar so she could spend more time working directly with employees. Julian Birkinshaw and Simon Caulkin say there are lessons here for everyone.
