Fun in the office.,
This review is from: The Little Book of Management Bollocks (Paperback)
If you're the kind of Manager this book parodies you'll hate it (assuming you understand it). If you're not, earn some brownie points with your staff by passing it around the office. I unpacked it at my desk and we all spent the rest of the day laughing along with the author who's obviously worked for our company at some time.
The short and sharp (barbed?) comments are ideal for reading while the computer your Management thinks is fast is opening the latest inspirational E Mail.
Some of it has become topical since it was written with some of the recent management failures and corporate scandals. My personal favourite is:
"You cannot gain professional respect if your personal integrity is damaged."
"Prevent damage to your personal integrity by leaving it at home in the mornings."
From its first Mission Statement to its last page, if you only get a laugh a minute from this book you're either already aspiring to Higher Management or you read very slowly.
