Great authors, historians, musicians, and sports stars are usually included in end of the year "best" lists. Managers rarely show up on such lists. This book highlights 75 history-making management decisions that changed the way we think, live, and work. The decisions profiled remind executives that great management requires experience, vision, the ability to take risks, and good luck. This entertaining volume also covers 21 truly mistaken management decisions, a valuable contrast. getAbstract recommends this book to executives and managers who would like to be able to recount colorful war stories about some ups and downs in the evolution of management.
