Uncertain Art of Management/Onsman, Harry/Paper/0074711075/S053-D1
Australian Institute of Management
AIM Management Today Series
Management will always be more uncertain art than exact science. At its core lies that most unpredictable of factors, people, and in a rapidly changing environment, it is likely that what works for a manager one day may well be the wrong solution the next. While academics have comprehensively researched this area, the reality for the majority of managers at all levels is that management isn't a precise practice.
In The Uncertain Art of Management, Harry Onsman provides an in-depth and lively analysis of 32 issues that confuse, concern and exasperate managers at all levels. Management fads are debunked, gurus challenged, theories dissected, models put to the test and best practice explained. And to put it all in perspective, each chapter has practical guidelines to help managers 'cut through' when decisions need to be made...and the theory doesn't fit.
From methods to increase individual performance and ensure organisational health, to personal career survival and revival tips, this book is both practical and provocative.
The handbook approach will be as attractive for aspirant managers as it is for the experienced leader.
