Der Gegenentwurf zum unproduktiven Unternehmensalltag Wenn ein Unternehmen erfolgreich sein will, benötigt es angeblich hoch bezahlte Direktoren, lange Meetings, ein großes Werbebudget, Fünfjahrespläne und vor allem ständiges Wachstum. So weit die Theorie. In der Praxis kommen die Software-Unternehmer Jason Fried und David Heinemeier Hansson schon seit 10 Jahren ohne all das aus – und haben Erfolg. Die Autoren repräsentieren eine zukunftsweisende Geschäftskultur, die dabei ist, die alten Konzern-Dinosaurier das Fürchten zu lehren. Smart sind die neuen Unternehmer, beweglich, unprätentiös und technisch auf der Höhe. Arbeit ist für sie kein Selbstzweck, und Lebensqualität gehört ebenso zum Business wie die unvermeidliche menschliche Unzulänglichkeit. Nüchtern und wirksam setzt sich „Rework“ von hochtrabenden Begriffen wie „Reform“ oder „Revolution“ ab. Entstanden ist eine ketzerische „Business-Bibel“, die keine Management-Phrasen herbetet, sondern Mut macht zu echter Eigenständigkeit. Zu Recht schrieb ein Rezensent: „Sie können dieses Buch ignorieren, aber auf eigene Gefahr“.

Handbook of Effective Management

How to Manage Or Supervise Strategically

Author: Donald W. Huffmire,Jane D. Holmes

Publisher: Libraries Unlimited

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 165

View: 572

Effective management is as much an art as a science. Without it, organizations flounder and fail; with it, people excel and organizations succeed. That's simple in concept, yet difficult to achieve, despite the plethora of writings on the topic and the best practices that have accumulated through decades of example. As the authors demonstrate, the key to success is the integration of strategic concepts and front-line applications-which have, to date, been treated separately in both theory and practice. Employing the Strategic Management Model, developed by Huffmire, and applied as both an analytical tool and a practical framework for improving performance, the authors provide a comprehensive approach to management and supervision that will contribute to individual, team, and organization-wide success. Illustrating their principles through numerous real-life experiences, from organizations as diverse as Ford Motor Company, Johnsonville Foods, and Emerson Electric, the authors eschew fads and superficial palliatives in favor of basic skills and qualities. Focusing on such skills as delegation, prioritization, motivation, and decision making, Huffmire and Holmes show managers how to deliver results through their employees. The net effect is the development of people and organizations that are able to adapt to a constantly changing environment, set and achieve goals, conduct effective performance appraisals, retain the best people and develop successors, reduce costs, and increase profits. Featuring diagnostic tools, checklists, and an appendix with in-depth case studies, the "Handbook of Effective Management" is an essential resource for managers and supervisors in all types of organizations, as well as for professors and students of management and human resource and training professionals.
