Helena Åhman's "Mielen johtaminen organisaatiossa" (Sanoma Pro) has won the 2012 literature prize of the Finnish Association of Business School Graduates. The main prize is EUR 24,000 and it was awarded at the Helsinki Book Fair on 26 October 2012.
According to the jury, Åhman's book challenges readers to think. Åhman has extensively studied her book's theme – how to impact the human mind – and addresses the theme in a practical way. The goal of the book is that management take people better into account and also make it more comprehensive. The book's up-to-date list of sources, along with its clear and attractive layout, were also commended.
