Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Enhance your effectiveness as a manager in any organization!

The Book on Management is a step-by-step description of what management really is—and what it is not. This book describes in detail the processes of hiring the best employees, building and empowering teams, and creating an ideal environment and organizational structure where employees can achieve personal fulfillment. With real-world examples and applications, this resource will be your guide to understanding what makes one manager superior to another and the skills and tactics you’ll need to best get the job done.

From the historic development of the management position to a 90-day tactical plan for organizational change, this handy tool encompasses the totality of management. Useful for executives as well as neophytes, this book examines the three inseparable areas of successful management—its foundations, its functions, and intangibles such as leadership and motivation—that distinguish competent managers from ineffectual ones. Throughout The Book on Management, you’ll find reviews and discussions about leading managing books and theories from the last century, showing you how the managing concept has altered with the times.

The Book on Management covers many important aspects of management success, including:
  • delegation and empowerment
  • identifying and avoiding management time-wasters
  • creating position descriptions and identifying employee candidates
  • hiring decisions
  • molding a positive normative culture at the office
  • leadership in an organizational environment
  • motivating employees
  • addiction in the organization
The Book on Management has something for everyone—from the newly hired or promoted manager to the experienced manager who wishes for better team unification or wants to go higher into top management. With special focus on the necessity and technique of removing non-productive employees, communication issues, and monitoring company expenses, this book provides you with the means to lead a team motivated to achieve excellence.
