It 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.
