Managing

Book Description

 This landmark book by one of the world’s leading business thinkers is about managing, pure if not simple. It tackles the big questions managers everywhere face, such as:

  • How is anyone supposed to think, let alone think ahead, in this frenetic job?

  • Are leaders really more important than managers?

  • Is email destroying management practice?

  • Are managers the only ones who can, or should, manage?

  • How are managers supposed to connect when the very nature of their job disconnects them from what they are managing?

  • How can you manage it when you can’t reliably measure it?

MANAGING MAKES SENSE OF WHAT MIGHT BE THE WORLD’S MOST IMORTANT JOB.
