September 2014 Management magazine

Our cover story features Mike O’Donnell (MOD), outgoing COO of Trade Me, as he reflects on the last ten years at the iconic organisation. When he joined Sam Morgan to help build Trade Me, he saw it as an opportunity to learn some stuff, have some fun and scare himself a little bit along the way. The article is a must read for all managers and leaders – as Mike says; “We’re really seeing the end of business as usual and businesses that have relied on hierarchy, history and hands-on distribution are going to be fundamentally challenged. Many won’t see the other side of it.”

With four generations, with different values and aspirations, either competing or collaborating in the work place, the need to manage each generation effectively is more important than ever. We explore popular generational management theories, and recent scientific research that questions their validity – and consider the implications for managers in the article ‘Mind the Gap – Managing Different Generations’.

Plus we ask a panel of busy managers and leaders what makes them super-productive?

And we report on the call for a management renaissance.

The September issue is combined with NZBusiness magazine – and is available from August 18th.
