The only management models book you will ever need
Hundreds of models have been developed to track, measure and forecast business solutions, but as fashions shift how can we apply these theoretical frameworks effectively in real organizations?
Now, for the first time, business leaders can find all the most important models in one place. 100+ management models, the new book from international management experts Fons Trompenaars and Piet Hein Coebergh is a handy reference containing precise summaries of more than 100 classic management models. Each model is presented clearly and concisely, showing what problem it is intended to solve and how it might be used within an organization. All models also contain a helpful visualisation to aid understanding.
Each model is categorised under one of nine approaches to business: sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship, strategy, diversity of cultures, customers, human resource management, benchmarking and results, leadership, and implementation. At the end of each section there is a summary of the key dilemmas that tend to emerge from the particular function. This is an ideal book for both university students on management courses and business strategists wishing to find out which management models can work best for their organization.
