He is very critical for managers nowadays and especially in the MBA courses offered in the universities. He has been controversial through his 1975 Harvard Business Review article in which he examined what a number of managers in different industries actually did and found that they were not the robotic paragons of efficiency that they were usually made out to be. He found that the average manager are jumping from topic to topic and they are not good listeners. He said the pressures of his job drive the manager to be superficial in his actions. He termed the MBA as the bread and butter course saying that this course teaches the managers to do nothing. He analyzed and found five types of organizations the simple structure the machine bureaucracy the professional bureaucracy and the divisionalized form.
