This book is a great resource for managers who are expected to implement constant change initiatives whilst grappling with the realities of managing delivery.
The mix of theory & practice makes it easy to read & includes solutions to common issues – such as managing upwards as well as dealing with an uncertain work environment.
I like the reflective questions which get me thinking about what I’m doing & the way I’m doing it. The research quotes from managers reassure me that I’m not alone!
This book will remind any new and on-learning international manager of the importance of timeless themes for middle managers
Asia Pacific Business Review
Excellent guide for managers, new and experienced there is something for everyone. Cleary written by managers who have learnt lessons and are willing to share their learnings. Easy to read and follow, can refer to chapters of interest in isolation if you need to or are short of time, but i would recommend the whole book, look at it as self development.
