9780143119661: Winnie-the-Pooh on Management: In which a Very Important Bear and his friends are introduced to a Very Important Subject

Finally in paperback-a quick, easy, and fun primer on management fundamentals.

The failure to grasp the basics of management often trips up even the most successful companies. With that in mind, management consultant Roger E. Allen uses A. A. Milne's beloved stories and characters to illustrate essential business principles, such as the establishment of clear objectives and strong leadership, the need for accurate information, and other neglected aspects of prudent management. Wonderfully readable and informative and sure to have the paperback appeal of Benjamin Hoff's The Tao of Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh on Management is a must-read for anyone seeking to build their business skills but reluctant to become mired in an unnecessarily complex tome.

About the Author:

Roger E. Allen (1925-2008) was an associate of Allen Associates, a management consulting firm. Trained as an industrial and mechanical engineer, he gained line management experience with Proctor & Gamble, Root Corporation, and other prominent companies.

From Library Journal:

Management consultant Allen uses A.A. Milne's original stories and the classic drawings of Ernest H. Shepard as object lessons for today's manager. He presents the adventures of Christopher Robin and friends as illustrations of organizational management and comments on the effectiveness of management decisions and actions taken by various inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood. The Stranger who comes to the wood to instruct Pooh and friends in management never really explains why the group-who, after all, accomplish quite a bit without consultants-needs such instruction. Nevertheless, the Stranger teaches them basic management principles, including such fundamental communication concepts as, "The information should be meaningful to the individual who is receiving it." Although this work offers few new ideas, the old ones are refreshingly and humbly presented. Recommended for public libraries.
