Winnie-the-Pooh on Management: In which a Very Important Bear and his friends are introduced to a Very Important Subject

Front Cover
Penguin, May 31, 2011 - Business & Economics - 176 pages
Finally in paperback-a quick, easy, and fun primer on management fundamentals.

The failure to grasp the basics of management often trips up even the most successful companies. With that in mind, management consultant Roger E. Allen uses A. A. Milne's beloved stories and characters to illustrate essential business principles, such as the establishment of clear objectives and strong leadership, the need for accurate information, and other neglected aspects of prudent management. Wonderfully readable and informative and sure to have the paperback appeal of Benjamin Hoff's The Tao of Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh on Management is a must-read for anyone seeking to build their business skills but reluctant to become mired in an unnecessarily complex tome.
