The Seven Fatal Management Sins: Understanding and Avoiding Managerial Malpractice

Portada
CRC Press, 1998 - 261 páginas
Are today's managers more interested in managing their careers or managing their organizations? Are many of today's corporations in serious trouble because of chronic mismanagement? What makes successful-and unsuccessful-managers tick? Dr. John Collis, a lifelong observer of the business world, set out to find the answers to these provocative questions. And through extensive interviews and a nationwide comprehensive survey, he discovered the truth about corporate management in the United States.
Collis tells us what he learned in The Seven Fatal Management Sins, a candid yet optimistic assessment of the performance of today's managers. By looking at the responses of presidents and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, directors of various corporate boards, business news editors and managers themselves, he was able to identify the seven most common management mistakes and suggest bold new ways for others to avoid making these same mistakes in their own organizations.
The Seven Fatal Management Sins is an ideal book for practicing managers, students and teachers of business administration, senior corporate executives and anyone interested in finding out exactly what kind of individuals manage U.S. companies. If you're one of the millions of readers out there who loved books such as The One-Minute Manager and In Search of Excellence, this will be a worthy addition to your bookshelf.
