to our highest level of incompetence, as the saying goes. Typically, newly
minted managers are sent to seminars where they have to learn a new
vocabulary in order to deal with the employees they now manage. This adds
another layer to the learning process. Ed Konczal's book cuts out the
"middle man" so to speak. By using the "story telling" technique, which we
are all familiar with, the management methods are more easily grasped,
implemented and shared. This is an important factor because I'm frustrated
over the amount of jargon-heavy advice that was unnecessarily complicated
and not easily "implementable" outside of the seminar room.
This is a great book for many reasons. The most important reason that stands out is the fact that its to the point and brief with its case study approach. Many text books for undergrad and grad level courses are wordy and boring. This is a great book for teachers due to its one by one choice of cases presented. It can allow the teacher to use 2-3 cases per class. Again, great book and nicely written!!
