Overview

From outstanding companies and news-making business leaders — smart, concise, practical strategies for managers.

How do innovative managers actually motivate employees, beat the competition, and keep up with the new economy? In more than fifty lively, incisive profiles, New York Times reporters take readers inside companies like Citigroup, visit Harvard Business School, and interview Carly Fiorina and other prominent figures to uncover the essence of effective leadership.

Organized around such vital business issues as bringing together two corporate cultures, retaining a top-notch workforce, and exploiting new technologies, these real-world stories illuminate the theory and practice of good management.

What gets employees to stay when headhunters call — offers of better compensation or bosses who are invested in employee job satisfaction? What's the best way to build teamwork — in off-site training programs or in the office, where power struggles and other problems arise? Each case presents the objective and comprehensive review of the facts that readers expect from The New York Times and provides timely, knowledgeable answers to questions managers face now.

Brent Bowers and Deidre Leipziger are business editors at The New York Times.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New York Times editors Brent Bowers and Deidre Leipziger have compiled articles written by the paper's reporters under 10 sections pertaining to key business issues. Each chapter or case study in The New York Times Management Reader: Hot Ideas and Best Practices from the New World of Business is introduced by Times business reporter David Leonhardt; a few carry epilogues. Despite the thematic groupings, the work does not delve deeply into any area, and could just as easily be called Best Business Stories of the New York Times, 2000. (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
