Overview

Author William Napier takes us for a wild ride through the ranks of corporate America’s executive management teams in Drowning in Bad Management! Napier, a thirty-year corporate finance executive with experience primarily in the mortgage-banking industry, considers the mostly ineffective types of managers who are frequently encountered in corporations and the almost unbelievable myriad of blunders perpetrated by these alleged executives at many companies.

There are issues that seem to emerge again and again in corporate America in a never-ending cycle of ineffectiveness. He posits that many of the supposed geniuses running corporate America are in reality far more ordinary than extraordinary in terms of their management skills. A special chapter is included dealing specifically with “The Rise and Fall of Mortgage Banking,” in which the author sets the record straight about the causes of this debacle and dispels the misinformation and political posturing that that has so badly misrepresented what really happened and who is to blame.

Drowning in Bad Management! points out the lack of truth in much of the world’s business and government dialogue that is causing a lack of solutions for the critical issues that plague businesses and governments globally. To mitigate the damage to and negative perceptions of corporate America, Napier recommends proposals to stop the madness that is being perpetrated by runaway corporate America executives and their cohorts.
