Overview

How did Bill Clinton get his party to take him seriously again after the sex scandal story broke?

Who was the manager behind Edmund Hillary’s ascent of Mount Everest? Why could taking a nap after lunch be your route to a more productive day?

 

This engaging and entertaining book takes a fresh, honest approach and explores what it’s really like to be a manager. It addresses the kinds of issues managers face on a daily basis, from prioritising their time and balancing a team, to recruiting new staff and managing the numbers.

 

Written by Philip Delves Broughton, FT journalist and bestselling author of What They Teach You at Harvard Business School, this book is jam packed with titillating case studies and anecdotes from the very best and worst managers, including everyone from Bill Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg to Alex Ferguson and Roger Federer.

 

 

“for most of us, our days are more like splat-the-rat, flailing at problems as they emerge, hoping that one good wallop does the trick, but fearing that nothing is ever well and truly solved”

Management Matters, Philip Delves-Broughton
