Back cover copy

From The Wall Street Journal comes the definitive guide to management ideas and practices with lasting impact.

For decades, understanding management--what works, and what doesn't--has been the pursuit of the world's best and brightest. Globally, there are more than 1,500 credible schools offering master's degrees in business administration, and hundreds of magazines and newspapers and thousands of books devoted to the subject. What's been missing is a simple and convenient way to disseminate the best ideas and practices to managers everywhere, at all levels and in all kinds of industries and organizations.

The Wall Street Journal Essential Guide to Management draws the best from the existing body of knowledge and research, and summarizes it in a simple, clear, and useful way. Focusing on classic and contemporary works that have been recommended by members of The Wall Street Journal CEO Council--all chief executives of large and successful global companies--it is an invaluable reference and essential tool for every manager, new and experienced alike.
