The origins of citizenship in ancient Athens by Brook Manville( )

34 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 1,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this unusual synthesis of political and socio-economic history, Philip Manville demonstrates that citizenship for the Athenians was not merely a legal construct but rather a complex concept that was both an institution and a mode of social behavior. He further shows that it was not static, as most scholarship has assumed, but rather has slowly evolved over time. The work is also an explanation of the origins and development of the polis. Originally published in 1997. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Judgment calls : 12 stories of big decisions and the teams that got them right by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great decisions depend on judgment calls, but in a complicated and fast-changing situation (like a modern business), no one leader's knowledge and perspective is sufficient to make them wisely. Some decision-makers have found ways to tap the collective judgment of their people - and leaders of other groups can profit from them. What's the story behind great decisions? Is decision-making the responsibility of one leader or should it rest on the shoulders of the collective team? In Judgment Calls, authors Tom Davenport and Brooke Manville share twelve stories of organizations that have successfully tapped the diverse perspectives and deep knowledge of their people to build an organizational decision-making capability - a competence they say can make the difference between success and failure
A company of citizens : what the world's first democracy teaches leaders about creating great organizations by Brook Manville( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this provocative book, organizational expert Brook Manville and Princeton classics professor Josiah Ober argue that ancient Athenian democracy provides an ingenious solution to the paradox facing every modern leader: how to ratchet up overall performance while nurturing the individuals whose knowledge and expertise fuel the firm." "Manville and Ober show that the Athenian approach to organizing people - as self-governing, knowledge-sharing citizens - was driven by three core elements: democratic values, governance structures, and participatory practices. This dynamic system served as the architecture that supported Athens' two-hundred-year reign of innovation and excellence - and the authors say it also holds the key to building a long-lasting, modern-day "company of citizens.""--Jacket
Harvard Business Review leader's handbook : make an impact, inspire your organization, and get to the next level by Ronald N Ashkenas( Book )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Put aside all the hypey new frameworks, the listicles, the "10 best things you need" to succeed as a leader today. The critical leadership practices--the ones that will allow a leader to make the biggest impact over time--are already well established. They're about how you relate to others. How you make difficult strategic choices. How you get results. How you scan the landscape around you, build a vision for the future, and inspire people to follow you. In fact, these fundamental skills are becoming more important today as organizations and teams become increasingly networked and fragmented and the nature of leadership hierarchies changes. What's hard is actually doing these things--and excelling at them. In this book, strategy and change experts Ron Ashkenas and Brook Manville distill the best proven ideas and frameworks about leadership from Harvard Business Review and from their careers in leadership development and transformation into a concise handbook that shows rising leaders how to have the most impact on their organizations. You'll learn how to build a unifying vision, set strategy, manage for results, hire and inspire great leaders and teams, drive innovation, and, finally, lead yourself on your own career journey. Each chapter of the book describes one of these six practices in depth, discussing the pitfalls that real leaders face and how to overcome them, with insights from well-known leaders such as Stanley McChrystal, Dominic Barton, Darren Walker, Jack Welch, and Ann Mulcahy. Each chapter also synthesizes the best Harvard Business Review thinking on the topic. This book gives you the tools you need to have more impact as a leader today, and into the future.--
Judgment calls : 12 stories of big decisions and the teams that got them right by Thomas H Davenport( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Your guide to making better decisions. Despite the dizzying amount of data at our disposal today-and an increasing reliance on analytics to make the majority of our decisions-many of our most critical choices still come down to human judgment. This fact is fundamental to organizations whose leaders must often make crucial decisions: to do this they need the best available insights. In Judgment Calls, authors Tom Davenport and Brook Manville share twelve stories of organizations that have successfully tapped their data assets, diverse perspectives, and deep knowledge to build an organizational decision-making capability-a competence they say can make the difference between success and failure. This book introduces a model that taps the collective judgment of an organization so that the right decisions are made, and the entire organization profits. Through the stories in Judgment Calls, the authors-both of them seasoned management thinkers and advisers-make the c
