Discover the practical tips to make you an effective, customer-oriented manager!

Focusing on the pervading belief that everything a manager does must be customer oriented, The Concise Handbook of Management: A Practitioner’s Approach gives you an overview of everything you need to know about managing in one practical, concise book. This plain-talking guide not only explains management theories, but also presents commonsense suggestions on the best ways to effectively manage people and things, no matter what type of business you are in. Taking a practitioner’s approach of discussing management issues with customers ultimately in mind, this practical book motivates, is easily understandable, and is entertaining to boot.

The Concise Handbook of Management: A Practitioner’s Approach uses succinct chapters with several real stories and case studies designed to clearly illustrate each concept and suggestion. Written with the busy manager in mind, each chapter is compact, clear, true-to-life, and is always aimed at the bottom line. The book includes a small business marketing and promotion checklist, a helpful bibliography, and a useful glossary of terms.

  • the first three steps in becoming a good manager
