Extensively revised in the light of new thinking on management, this new edition of a bestselling practical guide covers 50 key topics, organized into the three key areas in which any manager needs to be competent: managing people; managing activities and processes; and managing and developing themselves. An invaluable handbook for existing and aspiring managers, it explains what they need to understand, and be able to do. No book can tell managers what to do in every situation, but this book provides sound guidelines that will help anyone to develop a broad base of managerial skills and knowledge and build on existing skills. The demands made on managers in today's turbulent, uncertain and demanding world constantly increase. Even the most experienced manager needs to keep abreast of new developments and brush up on essential skills. This new edition will continue to be an invaluable aid.
