After 30 years working with businesses, not-for-profits and governments, Simon Bailey knows that there is not much new in the world. People running organizations make the same mistakes year in and year out.
Call It Like It Is takes the reader on a light-hearted journey through the process of planning for, running and eventually leaving a business. By contrast with other business books, this one is light on theory and very much about practice!
There are three books in the series. Book Three explores the key issues faced in running and exiting from a mature business, organization or division, including raising capital for expansion. It covers the mistakes most people make time and again and shows the reader how not to make them - or fix them if they already have!
Each chapter contains three case studies showing how the theory is turned into practice. The case studies have been designed to provide both specific examples of the theory and more general information about management.
Every business owner and manager who doesn't take themselves too seriously ought to read these books. They are a source of valuable information that is presented simply and in a way that is entertaining rather than complex.
The case studies summarize 30 years of work done by someone who is paid thousands of dollars a day to apply this knowledge to organizations ranging from multi-national businesses to small startups.
Every employee should read these books - to see just how poorly they are being managed!

About the Author
Simon is a 'generalist' who has significant experience working in all of the traditional corporate silos. He has worked with Top 100 companies, small to medium enterprises and micro-businesses, including startups. His ability to bring a team together and lead it has been proven time and again. He has worked in or on several hundred businesses.
Simon lives in Australia, but has worked in the US, Canada, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan, Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. His experience spans Information Technology, Telecommunications, Government and NGO, Franchising, Personnel & Recruitment, Horticulture, Pharmaceuticals & Phytopharmaceuticals, Manufacturing, Medical and Dental, Tourism & Hospitality and Investment Banking.
His focus has been on organizational optimization and restructure - getting the best out of people and organizations in a sustainable fashion. Simon has a wealth of experience and a natural way of communicating it so that others can actually use the knowledge he imparts. Simon's focus is on transferring knowledge and the skills necessary to ongoing self-management, rather than continuing to offer advisory services once a project is complete.
Simon has also spent many years 'giving back' to the country through his pro bono contribution to training & development schemes for small business, the Ability Australia Foundation ('mainstreaming' people with a Disability), the National Dental Foundation (free dental care for those who can't afford it) and Mad Cap Cafe (a commercial enterprise of the Eastern Region Mental Health Association).
