Drawing on 50 years of high-level management experience and academic research between them, they then reached out to more than 15,000 managers around the world.

That input has helped to shape a book that brings together management, leadership and workplace effectiveness best practice in one easy-to-access collection, for people who manage people, anywhere on the planet.
