HBR – Harvard Business Review Magazine

Lately I’m reading a lot of articles from the Harvard Business Review Magazine,
which publishes Articles and blog posts and case studies that were created to improve the practice of management and its impact in a changing world.

Most of the blog posts are free to read and some of the Articles from the magazine too,
but the most are sold for a price.

The site focuses on topics like:

  • Change management
  • Information technology
  • Leadership
  • Operations management
  • Strategy
  • Systems theory

or on Management Skills as:

  • Becoming a manager
  • Career planning
  • Coaching
  • Decision making
  • Delegation
  • Developing employees
  • Improving performance
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Interviewing
  • Leading teams
  • Managing people
  • Managing yourself
  • Team building

And many other topic, all fascinating and important to read for any new or seasoned manager alike.

I warmly recommend reading everything you can read from there, since you can find a case study or an article that discusses almost all the managerial dilemma that you might face through your working years.

And for those who cannot afford buying each article,
in a former post I’ve showed how to find most of them as pdf files available to download in Google.

One thought on “HBR – Harvard Business Review Magazine”

  1. The wide variety of articles on leadership covers well items from the basic topics such as the difference between managers and leaders to how someone can be both (and the tensions that can cause!). Two of the best articles were on how leaders really spend their time during the day and how leaders foster an environment in which other people can also be identified and brought forward as leaders.

    I would’ve rated this five stars, but there are a couple of articles (on ‘defining moments’ and CEOs) that weren’t a complete waste of time but seemed too far divorced from the typical leader within a company that I was surprised the HBR didn’t find something more likely to be widely applicable to fill the space.
