Overview

Introducing Management provides a concise and easy-to-read summary of the principles and practice of management for team leaders and line managers.

It defines the scope of the management task and breaks it down to clarify and explain the full range of management responsibilities in the following sections:

Managing in Context: an introduction to the management role and responsibilities for the new manager Managing People: how to motivate people, lead and delegate and manage teams to improve performance and successfully manage change Managing Activities: adding value to inputs to meet customer needs, how to plan and organise the workplace to make improvements Managing Information: how to acquire accurate, timely and relevant information - the basis of all good management decisions Managing Resources: a beginners guide to all you need to know about financial information, budgeting and stock control

This is the standard classification of management responsibilities adopted by most competence-based frameworks, including that of the former NEBS Management and ISM.

Introducing Management treats management as a practical skill. It uses case studies, workplace activities and discussion questions to enable readers to check their understanding of how management principles are applied in practice and how it compares with their own experiences.

The learning development is clearly structured in each chapter to include objectives, quotes, insights, definitions and case studies.

Introducing Management: A Development Guide for New Managers provides the knowledge and learning required for the introductory awards of the Institute of Leadership and Management, which combines NEBS Management and the Institute of Supervisory Management.
