Samenvatting

What do you want me to do? This question is the enduring management issue, a perennial problem that Stephen Bungay shows has an old solution that is counter-intuitive and yet common sense.

'The Art of Action' is a thought-provoking and fresh look at how managers can turn planning into execution, and execution into results. Drawing on his experience as a consultant, senior manager and a highly respected military historian, Stephen Bungay takes a close look at the nineteenth-century Prussian Army, which built its agility on the initiative of its highly empowered junior officers, to show business leaders how they can build more effective, productive organizations.

Based on a theoretical framework which has been tested in practice over 150 years, Bungay shows how the approach known as 'mission command' has been applied in businesses as diverse as pharmaceuticals and F1 racing today. 'The Art of Action' is scholarly but engaging, rigorous but pragmatic, and shows how common sense can sometimes be surprising.

Over Stephen Bungay

Stephen Bungay was born in Kent in 1954 and educated at Oxford and Tübingen. He has spent his career working for the Boston Consulting Group in London and Munich as a chief executive in an insurance company. He is now working in executive education, specialising in military history and modern management practice. His first book, The Most Dangerous Enemy: A History of the Battle of Britain, published by Aurum in 2001 has now become accepted as the definitive book on the subject. His subsequent book, Alamein, also published by Aurum, was praised by Lawrence James in the Daily Mail as ‘a brilliant balance between lucid analysis and piquant detail', and by John Lukacs in the Los Angeles Times as ‘terse and brilliantly written by a thorough master of his subject'. He regularly appears on TV documentaries about the Second World War. He lives in Kent.
