Effective People Management
To Achieve Excellent Results
Published by John Wiley &
This book addresses the need of line managers at all levels of the
organisation to manage for commitment to results desired and achieve
people productivity to meet rising payroll costs and retain talent.
It also aids top management to ensure that strategic plans are
implemented well at the operational level. It provides the competencies
for the organisation to implement a sound management system so that it
can expand and yet have different entities, divisions and departments
work cohesively as a team so as to compete better.
It aids newly-appointed managers to manage ex-peers or new direct
reports assigned to them to obtain understanding and acceptance, if not
commitment, to results desired.
The results management system advocated in the book is the vehicle for
functional managers to manage with a systematic framework to deliver
their products and services to internal or external clients and
customers and be real partners to the enterprise.
