Harvard Business Review is well known in the business world among managers. The review presents business management case studies, books written by prominent and experienced business people and general topics of interest. The HBR has become a household name among upper management and is often a must-read for those managers of international companies who desire to move upward.
The main highlights of the HBR
The HBR can be considered as a series of articles which contains management case studies and topics. It is designed to pass on experience in the business world to those who are looking for upward mobility. It is designed also for those who may not have a business degree, but who have the talent to lead in the business world. Even though, it is written with some special business terms, the people at HBR insure that those terms are defined or broken down so that the business laymen can understand what is being written. Another advantage of the HBR is its online archive which is available only to subscribers of the premium edition. It contains over 2400 full-text articles within its database. The staff at HBR wants to promote executive education through skill management, providing educational articles that relate to planning, scheduling, setting goals, organising and controlling for the business world.
