After long days of work, with phone calls and deadlines coming from every direction, it's all you can do to get home with your sanity intact. You certainly don't need a dry, dense book about how to manage better!
Nevertheless, Scott R. Scheaffer makes his anecdote-like teachings easy to understand. "Comatose Management" is a book that covers six types of faulty management practices in a comfortable coffee-shop manner. Almost as if he were sitting in your living room, Scheaffer reminds us of seemingly obvious practices—practices we all seem to ignore time and time again.
Occasionally, we are aware of the presence of problems such as gender discrimination, but "Comatose Management" also helps us identify the clues that may already exist. We have all, at some time or other, been disappointed or perplexed by the ill achievements of our firm, but sometimes we skip some of the more glaring, simplistic causes of our failures in favor of the complicated ones. By stripping away our self-made veil, Scheaffer helps us connect the dots between his fictional companies and our real ones, and apply these forgotten principles.
From moronic bosses to a company's complete lack of direction, this book will help you identify and cope with the causes of corporate failure.
