Henry Mintzberg, OC OQ FRSC (born in Montreal, September 2, 1939) is an internationally renowned academic and author on business and management. Ironically, although Professor Mintzberg is quite critical about the strategy consulting business, he has twice won the McKinsey Award for publishing the best article in the Harvard Business Review. Also, he is credited with co-creating the organigraph, which is taught in business schools. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organigraph
