Guide to Management Ideasby Tim Hindle (Economist Books / Bloomberg Press)
The Guide to Management Ideas provides a clear overview of more than 100 significant ideas about how businesses should operate. As well as explaining each idea, it gives a summary of the history behind it, and lists suggestions for further reading.
Much has changed in the way businesses have been managed in the last hundred years. Furthermore, the guide explores which ideas are likely to continue into this century. From the balanced scorecard and benchmarking, through matrix management and mentoring, all the way to vision and zero-base budgeting, each idea is covered comprehensively. The entries all include an explanation of the business idea, a brief history of its development, and recommended further reading.
For managers everywhere who seek to get to grips with the concepts that power business success, there is no more better or more accessible guide than this.
