Management of Professionals

Excerpt

This book is an outgrowth of the success of the first edition (Marcel Dekker, 1988). It was apparent from the response to that earlier work that a need existed for an updated and expanded volume designed to provide managers and professionals with tested management concepts and techniques that can be applied to increase individual and organizational effectiveness.

The American work environment is increasingly composed of well-educated men and women who consider themselves professionals. Clearly, these employees have unique needs and expectations regarding how they manage and how they are managed in their working environment. The presence of global competition, world unrest, and economic changes threatens the American industrial base and offers new and greater challenges for management. The professional employee will often hold the key to whether or not these challenges are successfully met, which may in fact determine individual firm survival. Thus, it is imperative that both professionals and their managers gain a greater understanding of their mutual dependency. This book was developed to address that need. Relevant research and concepts directed at the professional work environment have been crystallized into a practical, “no-nonsense” approach to improving organizational effectiveness and bottom-line profitability.
