So what do managers do in practice? How do they spend their time (or put another way, how does their time spend them)? Are there differences in the demands of managers in different positions, or within different organizations? These were the questions that famed management theorist Rosemary Stewart set out to uncover in her research back in the 1960s, resulting in the first edition of this episode’s subject–her book "Managers and Their Jobs: A Study of the Similarities and Differences in the Ways Managers Spend Their Time". Join us, and our special guest Dr. Maja Korica from Warwick Business School, as we discuss this work and bring it into present-day focus.
