Publisher Comments:

Good management is a precious commodity in the corporate world.  Guide to Management Ideas and Gurus is a straight-forward manual on the most innovative management ideas and the management gurus who developed them.

The management gurus covered include: Dale Carnegie, Jim Collins, Stephen Covey, Peter Drucker, Philip Kotler, Michael Porter, Tom Peters, and many others.

Synopsis:

Good management is a precious commodity in the corporate world, and good ideas are even more rare. Guide to Management Ideas and Gurus gathers the most influential ideas and thinkers that have defined modern management into one compact guide. This new book builds on Guide to Management Ideas (2003) and adds entries on the most influential business thought leaders of the past and present. Topics covered range from Active Inertia and Disruptive Technology to Triple Bottom Line and the Long Tail, while the management gurus covered include Jim Collins, Peter Drucker, Philip Kotler, Michael Porter, Tom Peters, and many others.
