About this product
- DescriptionIt is a fact of business life that most managers are promoted into their first management job with hardly any training. And if they get promoted again, guess what? The same thing happens again. Managers are basically expected to work out how to do a new job by reacting to the pressures the role puts on them. They can ask questions to begin with, of course, but by the time they have been in post for a while they find it difficult to reveal their igrance or lack of skills to other people.So, they look for a book that:? Is a one-stop shop, they don't want to buy a book covering each individual aspect of their work, they want it in one place Is t too academic or clever, you don't need Drucker on Globalisation when you are trying to make a decision whether or t to hire someone in the Paris office Gives hard practical advice built on experience rather than management theory Works Is accessible and easy to use Is simple and practical to implement tomorrow! 100 Business FAQ's is just that book. It gives step-by-step solutions to sensible questions such as, 'What exactly is in a strategic plan?' and 'How do you do risk assessment?' This book is t a once-only read, it will become your business bible - to be used in anger from day one and referred to throughout the rest of your careerThe book also gives practical answers to important questions such as 'How do I gain influence with my boss's boss without anying my boss?' Answer:First make sure that your boss thinks that other people believe that your good ideas are his. Then make sure that your boss's boss kws that both your good ideas and your boss's good ideas are really yours. Remember that success has many parents while failure is an orphan.
