I first read this book in 1987 when I started my MBA program. I use her basic principles more than I can count. I have observed behavior in the organizations I have worked for - and seeing it through the lens of this book has paid off for me. It has made me a better leader, and I can make good choices for myself and my staff. If nothing else stands out - recognizing that people are directly impacted by power, opportunity and fear (most of all) has helped me understand why many organizations melt down. I love this book, and while I still have my original paper copy I decided to buy it on Kindle to keep it with me. I lend the paper copy - and someday I may not get it back.

Kanter's seminal book introduces readers to a number of concepts such as organizational demography. It's drawing on a wealth of qualitative and quantitative data, all of which are skillfully analyzed. It is very easy to read and a great reading for an undergraduate class.

By Mollie Behm on February 13, 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Men and Women of the Corporation creates an interesting perspective of corporate culture of the 1970’s. Kanter provides an excellent foundation of managerial theory to support her descriptions of key-players of the mock company; Industrial Supply Corporation. The thorough depiction of managers, executives, and secretaries allowed the reader to actually visualize what the company looked like. I was pleased with the final section of the book that challenged corporations to make specific changes to right the inequities as experiences by women and minorities of the time. This book was an insightful read personally and professionally, as I am gracious for the opportunity to be part of a corporate culture that allows growth and opportunity to women.
