Review

Winner of the ‘Practical Manager’ category at the Chartered Management Institute Management Book of the Year Awards.

 

The Little Book of Big Management Theories was praised by judges for being relevant, highly readable and refreshing in its approach – useful to experienced and new managers alike. Covering 89 management theories, it provides a summary of each theory, a guide of how to use it and a list of questions to ask, making it an ideal reference book.

 

Rebecca Taylor, the Dean and Director of Studies at the Open University Business School, explained why the book deserved to win:

“This book was a delight to read and was a highly refreshing approach to the world of management. The ‘big’ ideas have been boiled down into easily-digestible chunks that are perfect either as an introduction or a refresher for the more experienced manager. The personal writing style and lack of preaching makes it a brilliant desk-side companion for a manager of any level, and I highly recommend it.”

 

"Every manager should have a copy of this book." 
Alan Shaw, Managing Director, Regent Engineering Co.

"I'll make sure that every manager in our pharmacy outlets gets a copy of this book" 
Manjit Jhooty, Managing Director, Jhoots Pharmacy

"'Every manager should read this book'" 
Geoff Round, Chief Executive, Birmingham Civic Housing Association Ltd
