In this book former McKinsey Partner Mickey Huibregtsen shares his vision and ideas with next generations of leaders. This book is relevant for managers at any level in any type of organization who aspire to “see the forest through the trees”. Our societies have come to the end of the road. We need a fundamental reconstruction of the systems and institutions that now govern us and redefine the roles of all the players with a stronger focus on making things work by respecting the human dimension. This is not a choice between socialism, and capitalism or any other -ism. There is no future for any pure -ism. Life is too complex and interdependent for that. We need organic institutions with a clear view of purpose and values. We need governments that guide and inspire, rather than direct and control. We need corporations that pursue value creation for all stakeholders and finally we need citizens that reassume their personal responsibility for the wellbeing of society. The world's complexity grows exponentially in the 2010s and 2020s. And with it the challenge to management at any level of any organization anywhere. The purpose of this book is to help managers deal with this complexity by offering some simple concepts, models and ideas on topics varying from corporate strategy to organisation, leadership and operating performance. The working hypothesis in doing so is that there is only one way of dealing with complexity and that is by making things simple. In this book Mickey Huibregtsen shares his vision and ideas with next generations of leaders. This book is relevant for managers at any level in any type of organization who aspire to "see the forest through the trees". Mickey Huibregtsen (1940) is an engineer by training. Prior to joining McKinsey & Company in 1970 he was responsible for the structural design of a submarine for the Dutch Navy and the General Manager of the Gas Turbine division of Stork and as such involved in the building of the World's largest oil booster station in the middle of the desert in Iran. As a senior partner of McKinsey & Company worldwide (1970-1998) he counseled most of the top 50 companies in the Netherlands and half of the government departments as well as many clients elsewhere in Europe and in the USA. He launched a wide array of public initiatives in business, science, education, health care, media and sports to enhance overall performance both in quantitative and qualitative results. Amongst many other roles he was chairman of the Dutch Olympic Committee (NOC*NSF) from 1990 to 1998. "Mickey is a great leader, and I am excited that he is sharing his lessons on leadership with the broader business community. He has a wealth of unique experience and brings a distinctive perspective on best practices relevant to managers at all levels". Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner McKinsey & Company "This is a very important and comprehensive reminder of prudent management from a deep thinker and practitioner of management whom I have known for a long time. For an ambitious global leader, this is a must read and a useful reminder of good management practice". Kenichi Ohmae, Japan's management guru and CEO Business Breakthrough "As a global hub airport we clearly recognize Mickey's observations. His thinking inspires Royal Schiphol Group and me personally to put our contribution to society even more central in our objectives and be ready to accommodate the needs of an increasing globalized world". Jos Nijhuis, President & CEO of Royal Schiphol Group "Mickey helps you to understand complexity in a simple way: great insights in how you can adapt your thinking to present realities". Jeroen van der Veer, former CEO Royal Dutch Shell "The world's complexity grows exponentially. "Management Made Simple" will help you understand how to deal with this increased pace of change, the main global issues and the role and responsibility of corporations". Feike Sijbesma, CEO Royal D
