Managing With Power: Power and Influence in Organizations by Jeffrey Pfeffer

Although much as been written about how to make better decisions, a decision by itself changes nothing. The big problem facing managers & their organizations today is one of implementation--how to get things done in a timely & effective way. Problems of implementation are really issues of how to influence behavior, change the course of events, overcome resistance, & get people to do things they would not otherwise do. In a word, power. Managing With Power provides an in-depth look at the role of power & influence in organizations. Pfeffer shows convincingly that its effective use is an essential component of strong leadership. With vivid examples, he makes a compelling case for the necessity of power in mobilizing the political support & resources to get things done in any organization. He provides an intriguing look at the personal attributes--such as flexibility, stamina, & a high tolerance for conflict--& the structural factors--such as control of resources, access to information, & formal authority--that can help managers advance organizational goals & achieve individual success. Its the best guide to organizational politicking that the Jobs column has ever read.--Financial Times Jeff Pfeffer does a masterful job of demystifying the topic of power in organizations..
