Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Checklists, work sheets, and action plans are all tools used to plan and carry out tasks and projects. Like tools that are most effective in the hands of a skilled artisan or craftsperson, these, as Davis suggests in her title, are best utilized by "smart managers." However, it is also important to have the right tool for the right job. Davis, based in Britain, is an international management consultant. Here she provides checklists, work sheets, and action plans for 30 areas of management. Davis' tools seem most likely to be effective when used to complete specific tasks such as budget preparation, setting up Internet access, and making presentations. Although helpful, they may not be nearly so effective in facilitating ongoing or complicated processes that she also includes, such as crisis management, teamwork, and selling. Smart managers will have to decide what works best for them from among the selections in Davis' toolbox. David Rouse

Book Description

"Maria has to present her first budget in less than a month, but she works from 8 to 6 as it is. Pat has to conduct a performance appraisal...of a very difficult employee. Don has to put together a quality report for his area (something he has not done in years). Where can they all turn?

For managers who are out of time, out of information, or just out of patience, Shortcuts for Smart Managers provides solutions and preventive cures for many typical challenges. This concise managerial toolbox contains just the essential how-to information, including checklists, worksheets, and action plans for 30 key issues managers face. These interactive, capsulized chapters help time-pressed managers with subjects like:

* coaching * conference planning * decision making * meetings * goal setting * communication * project planning * the Internet * negotiation * presentations * marketing * public relations * strategic planning * teams * training * crisis management * delegating * and more!"

Format: Hardcover
Shortcuts for Smart Managers presents checklists and fill-in-the-blank forms for just about every imaginable task a manager would want to accoplish, from a marketing plan to a prep sheet for negotiation. They help you focus on the critical points and cut to the chase. I bought it for the prep sheet on how to deal with difficult people! I like to be prepared, but don't think I have time--- these shortcuts really appeal to me.
