Über diesen Titel:
First published in the 1960s, this thoroughly revised and updated edition finds the fundamentals of managing remain the same. It provides a unique long perspective on current managerial fashions, on the evidence of their utility and distinguishing what is new from what is reinvention.
The Reality of Management is addressed to all managers who wish to learn more about their jobs for the practical reason of becoming better managers and to all students who seek to learn something of the realities of management.
Practical, hands-on, readable approach to the realities of management
Includes descriptions of social research into management practice and problems
This title stands as a management classic alongside Peter Drucker, Mary Parker Follet, Charles Handy and Michael Porter's works
Reviews of previous editions:
'The real value of the book lies in the fact that it should bring to a wide audience...some idea of the contribution that systematic research can make to an understanding of the manager's task.'
The Sunday Times
'This is a book to be welcomed by everyone concerned with the teaching of management. It should be required reading on every management course.'
British Journal of Industrial Relations
'For those who want a short cut through the literature on management....Miss Stewart's book is an excellent choice.'
'A stimulating and thought-provoking book.'
'The most significant book seeking to round up the realities of management...since Peter Drucker's classic 'The Practice of Management'.
'Excellent...has not aged with time...still relevant...well laid out, good analysis and depth and extremely readable.'
Senior Lecturer, Chichester Institute of Higher Education
'The most dilapidated volume on my management bookshelf is the first
edition of this classic text first published in 1963. It is good to have a new
edition...So is this the book on management to have? Certainly you could
scarcely do better. Steering expertly between the the Scylla of the
Drucker and Mintzberg tomes, and the Charybdis of the glib One-Minute
manager and Excellence charlatans, Rosemary Stewart remains cool,
rational, sensible and, what is best, helpful.
