What people are saying - Write a review
One more great book from HBR. It covers several very important topics for newbies and mature managers.
I think significant part of management staff is not effective because they don't really know what managers should do, what is important, how to avoid whirlpool of daily list of unimportant tasks, manage own time in correct way, work on strategic important questions.
All these topics are widely covered by several articles in this book.
What is really important there is no single answer for a problem, all situations are described from different views by people with extensive experience.
This book is really worth reading.
