Are you sick of your boss? Of the old boys' mentality? Don't despair! JACK FEENEY uncloaks the black art and removes the mystery; like the spy coming in from the cold, he decided to come in from the waffle. While genuine issues, such as ethics in business, are buried in the subtext, this book is a witty, acerbic hatchet job on the phenomenon of management: What managers do, when, and why? When to expand and when to downsize? Why are people now 'human resources'? What is a bogus bank account? When should waffle and technical jargon be tactically used? Can firing people be fun? This A-Z of management is a quirky fix that teaches what you don't learn at Harvard or respectable schools of management. It asks and answers the important questions, questions those answers and then answers the questions a second time.
