Like Scratch, Manage to Lead provides leaders with frameworks and visuals to help business leaders ask the right questions, identify the most important goals and target optimal resources to solve organizational and business problems. The frameworks anchor the managers and leaders so s/he can be creative in meeting business challenges.
This is a book that leaders will put on their bookshelf - not to collect dust, but to refer back to often. As s/he gains experience and the business situation evolves, Mr. DiGiammarino's frameworks can be nuanced for different business scenarios and maturation stages of the company. I recommend the book to entrepreneurs as well as managers who are leading large public companies.
In Manage to Lead, DiGiammarino takes his change model for creating organization transformation and establishes a set of tools and models that allow his insights to be utilized in any environment. Instead of just providing airy ideas on a macro level, he describes those big ideas and then provides micro-level models to show how to best implement key strategic organizational decisions. These insights will be helpful for everyone from the CEOs of for-profit companies to CFOs of nonprofit organizations. This book will help you clearly sketch out the nature of the problem you are trying to solve. It will not give practitioners a roadmap to moving from their present position to a desired future state, but it will give them the tools to draw their own.
Another useful aspect of DiGiammarino's book is his integration of leadership and managerial perspectives. Too often authors remain siloed within a strict focus on either leadership or management, as though these are wholly distinct categories. A leader who cannot manage may be able to get her organization started and inspire the troops, but may have trouble with institution building. Managers without leadership skills will struggle to sustain themselves without higher level support.
DiGiammarino's work demonstrates that he clearly takes his commitment to help others seriously, and personally. He's certainly been an essential part of my development as an OD practitioner. Manage to Lead is a must read for any OD student, manager, or business leader.
