The General Managers

by Dr. John Kotter

In The General Managers, Dr. Kotter takes on the popular management notion of the effective “generalist” manager who can step into any business or division and run it. Based on his first-hand observations of fifteen top GMs from nine major companies, Kotter persuasively shows that the best manager is actually a specialist who has spent most of his or her career in one industry, learning its intricacies and establishing cooperative working relationships.
