Overview


Finally in paperback-a quick, easy, and fun primer on management fundamentals.

The failure to grasp the basics of management often trips up even the most successful companies. With that in mind, management consultant Roger E. Allen uses A. A. Milne's beloved stories and characters to illustrate essential business principles, such as the establishment of clear objectives and strong leadership, the need for accurate information, and other neglected aspects of prudent management. Wonderfully readable and informative and sure to have the paperback appeal of Benjamin Hoff's The Tao of Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh on Management is a must-read for anyone seeking to build their business skills but reluctant to become mired in an unnecessarily complex tome.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When it comes to management guides, making your lessons memorable is the name of the business. Roger E. Allen's Winnie-The-Pooh on Management achieved that goal and 120,000 sales in hardcover by tapping on the intrinsic appeal of the world's most lovable bear. Drawing on the characters in A.A. Milne's classic children story, he shows how sound management principles can be demonstrated in the interactions of the Ashdown Forest creatures. A bear with a brain is always a good teacher.
