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

Finding HBR articles on the net

I love HBR articles – Harvard Business Review Web site is great, and full with interesting readings,
but I can’t afford buying them for 5$ each,
still they can be easily accessed with an easy to use pdf search engine,
here is a simple example:

Lets say I’ve stumbled over this nice article I wish to read:
“How Leaders Create and Use Networks” by Herminia Ibarra, Mark Hunter.

It looks nice enough and I want to go over it, but I don’t want to pay the 6.95$ HBR are asking for it,
a very simple way to find it would be to search for it in any given PDF search engine available, or even google engine itself.

For example:
Go to http://www.pdfsearchengine.org
and search for:

hbr  How Leaders Create and Use Networks

The First result will send you to:
http://www.tenseattle.org/resources/Documents/Networking-HBR-%2001-07.pdf

which includes the entire article in a PDF version ready for reading :)

Google search:

just write in the search panel the name of the article you are looking for and “filetype:pdf”
For example, in our case I will search for:
How Leaders Create and Use Networks filetype:pdf

from the results I got,
one option lead to http://www.sail.co.in/Growth_April_June_2007.pdf#page=101
which included a nice reading Article Digest for this HBR article

another option lead to http://www.brittenassociates.com/documents_articles/Leaders%20Creating%20Using%20Networks.pdf
which also included the full article in PDF ready for reading and typing.

Happy reading :)
