By Ronald R. Sims
An ability to feel comfortable with ambiguity, with constant and increasingly demanding change, with a new, unique commitment to teams and teamwork, and with a willingness to stay customer-oriented: Sims sees these as the prime requisites for success in management today. Marshalling evidence from academic research and practical experience, Sims shows how researchers continue to redefine the roles and responsbilities of executives and their reports. His book provides not only the reasons why the new organization is what it is, but how to cope with it and succeed in it. A must-read for supervisors, managers, executives, and recent graduates who are ready to take their own places in the new world of business.
