Tim Brooks, CEO, BMJ Group

”This pragmatic book will stimulate managers to drive higher performance and get the best out of people. In such a challenging environment, this can only be good for business!”
Carolyn McCall, CEO, Easy Jet

”A must-read for any manager working to foster the right culture. Belief in excellence and the ability to enable people to perform at their best is fundamental for generating and sustaining high performance.”
Johanna Friedl-Naderer, Region Vice President, Biogen Idec

”I believe this common-sense, simple approach would motivate both managers and individuals to change and empower them to improve their own performance.”
Michael Parr, CEO, British Arab Commercial Bank

It’s a tough job being a manager.

How do you manage performance? If you come across as too directive you may get a reputation for harshness. If you are too nice you risk being known as a gullible and easily outmanoeuvred. Neither approach works.

Employee engagement is the magical ingredient: it makes staff genuinely committed, creating excellent work. Few organizations actually achieve it, though all say they want it. Coaching is the most reliable a way of producing it.

In Manager as Coach, Jenny Rogers challenges many of the traditional assumptions about what works in management and shows you, step by step, how to be a brilliant manager and get fantastic results:

  • Reduce your stress
  • Develop employees’ key skills
  • Create a culture of engagement
  • Improve bottom line results

    Jenny Rogers is one of the leading executive coaches in the UK with more than 20 years of experience. Her clients are typically chief executives and directors of large organizations. She writes extensively about coaching and leadership and has trained many hundreds of managers in coaching skills in the UK and internationally.

    Karen Whittleworth is an acclaimed trainer, coach and coach supervisor, and the founding director of Worth Consulting Ltd.

    Andrew Gilbert is an internationally known as a speaker, trainer and executive coach. He is the co-director of Worth Consulting Ltd.

The Visual MBA: A Quick Guide to Everything You’ll Learn in Two Years of Business School

Learn an entire MBA course without spending thousands and waving goodbye to two years of your life

If you want to succeed in business then an MBA programme is the best way to build expertise, knowledge and experience. But an MBA programme at any top school is an enormous investment in time, effort and money. In The Visual MBA, Jason Barron offers a radical solution, explaining all key business school concepts through illustrations.

When Barron started his MBA course, he decided to draw all his notes so that other people could benefit from them. And it’s a good thing he did, because research shows that more than 65% of us are visual learners and that our brains process illustrations 60,000 times faster than text.

From Marketing, Ethics and Accounting to Organisational Behaviour, Finance, Operations and Strategy, The Visual MBA distils the most important principles of an MBA into an accessible, informative and easily-digestible guide.

Jason Barron is a product manager and illustrator who helps people realise their creative ideas through visual learning. He spent 516 hours in class and countless hours studying at home completing his MBA. Along the way, rather than taking notes that he would never read again, Jason created sketchnotes for each class and has turned them into an interesting and engaging resource so that you don’t have to sit through another class again!

Discover how to become an effective woman in leadership — even if you’re shy, avoid conflict at all costs, or lack confidence.

Are you tired of seeing men at work get promoted, be given better assignments, and enjoy pay raises even though you know your skills and results are just as good, if not better?

Do you find it difficult to express yourself during work meetings without being hostile or apologetic?

Perhaps you’re tired of coming home feeling frustrated because you didn’t speak up at the meeting, or maybe you feel as though, no matter what you try, people just walk all over you.

You know that there must be another way.

  • Wants to know the secrets to improving communication

then Jemma Roedel can help you.

Many people don’t understand that there’s a lot more to being a leader than just managing people.

And much more.

How do you get people to be more innovative every day? You need to build it into your organization s DNA. Otherwise, your team will view innovation as a side project and your efforts will fail.

But what does that mean? Some fear it means that we all need to become technologists who master the intricacies of coding, algorithms, AI, machine learning, robotics, and who-knows-what’s-next.

That’s not the case. You can develop a digital mindset, and this book shows you how. It introduces three approaches—Collaboration, Computation, and Change—and the perspectives and actions within each approach that will enable you to develop the digital skills you need. With a digital mindset, you’ll ask the right questions, make smart decisions, and appreciate new possibilities for a digital future. Leaders who adopt these approaches will be able to develop their organization’s talent and prepare their company for successful and continued digital transformation.

Award-winning researchers and professors Paul Leonardi and Tsedal Neeley will show you how to do it and let you in on the surprising and welcome secret: developing a digital mindset isn’t as hard as you think. Most people can become digitally savvy if they follow the “30 percent rule”—the minimum threshold that gives us enough digital literacy to understand and take advantage of the digital threads woven into the fabric of our world.

A digital mindset will future-proof you, your career, and your organization. Learn how to develop one here.

Harvard Business Review Project Management Handbook: How to Launch, Lead, and Sponsor Successful Projects (HBR Handbooks)

We’re now living in the project economy. The number of projects initiated in all sectors has skyrocketed, and project management skills have become essential for every leader and manager.

Staff Engineer: Leadership beyond the management track

At most technology companies, you’ll reach Senior software engineer, the career level for software engineers, in five to eight years. At the career level, your company’s career ladder won’t require that you work towards the next promotion; being promoted further is an exception rather than expected. This is also when many engineers are first given an opportunity to move into engineering management. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a flurry of books unlocking the engineering management career path, like Camille Fournier’s The Manager’s Path, Julie Zhuo’s The Making of a Manager, Lara Hogan’s Resilient Management, and even my own An Elegant Puzzle. The engineering management career isn’t an easy one, but there are maps available to help navigate it. What if you want to advance your career without becoming an engineering manager? The technical leadership path remains relatively undocumented, hard to navigate, and inconsistent across companies. Staff Engineer is your guide to building your career towards a Staff engineering role, receiving the title, and succeeding within the role.

How to Write a Good Advertisement: A Short Course in Copywriting

Call it advertising, call it promotion, call it marketing, but whatever you call it, every business and organization depends on words with impact. You need to grab the attention of potential customers, clients, or supporters and call them to action. Few among us are born talented copywriters, that rare combination of both facile wordsmiths and natural salespeople. Most of us need some help, and even naturals can improve by studying the best. Victor O. Schwab was one of the greats. Considered a marketing master during his 44-year career, he was the copywriter who propelled Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People into a mega-seller.

How to Write a Good Advertisement, Schwab’s classic guide, has stood the test of time. In just over 200 pages, this book clearly explains the core elements of an effective advertisement. Schwab shows us how to

  • Get attention with better ad copy
  • Build credibility in your advertising 
  • Create winning layouts and choose the best ad size
  • Test ad effectiveness
  • Convert inquiries to sales
  • Make special offers that dramatically increase response and sales

How to Write a Good Advertisement gets you quickly up to speed with examples of powerful profitable headlines (with explanations of why those headlines work so well), and quick lesson reviews that help you turn what you’ve read into skills you own. Schwab provides us shortcuts without sacrificing long-term understanding. Fifty years after publication this book is still the standard bearer, sought after by a new generation of copy-writers and businesspeople. Read it, apply it, and watch your sales soar.

Welcome to Management: How to Grow From Top Performer to Excellent Leader (BUSINESS BOOKS)

“The ultimate all-in-one guide to becoming a great leader.” ―Daniel Pink

From the creator and host of The Learning Leader Show, “the most dynamic leadership podcast out there” (Forbes) that will “help you lead smarter” (Inc.), comes an essential tactical guide for newly promoted managers.

Every year, millions of top performers are promoted to management-level jobs―only to discover that the tactics that got them promoted are not the tactics that will make them effective in their new role. In Welcome to Management, Ryan Hawk provides practical, actionable advice and tools designed to ensure that transition is a successful one.

He presents a new actionable three-part framework distilled from best practices drawn from in-depth interviews with over 300 of the most forward-thinking leaders around the world, as well as his own professional experience going from exceptional individual producer to new leader. Learn how to:

• lead yourself: build skills and earn credibility. Compliance can be commanded, but commitment cannot. People reserve their full capacity for emotional commitment for leaders they find credible, and credibility must be earned.

• build your team: develop a healthy and sustainable culture of mutual trust and respect that creates cohesion. This includes effective hiring and firing practices.

• lead your team: set a clear strategy and vision for your team, communicate effectively, and ultimately drive the results the organization is counting on your team to deliver.

Through case studies, hundreds of interviews, and personal stories, the book will help high performers make the leap from individual contributor to manager with greater ease, grace, courage, and effectiveness. Welcome to management!

Visual and Multimodal Research in Organization and Management Studies (Routledge Studies in Management, Organizations and Society)

This volume brings together two hitherto disparate domains of scholarly inquiry: organization and management studies on the one hand, and the study of visual and multimodal communication on the other. Within organization and management studies it has been recognized that organizational reality and communication are becoming increasingly visual, and, more generally, multimodal, whether in digital form or otherwise. Within multimodality studies it has been noted that many forms of contemporary communication are deeply influenced by organizational and managerial communication, as formerly formal and bureaucratic types of communication increasingly adopt promotional language and multimodal document presentation.

Visual and Multimodal Research in Organization and Management Studies integrates these two domains of research in a way that will benefit both. In particular, it conceptually and empirically connects recent insights from visual and multimodality studies to ongoing discussions in organization and management theory. Throughout, the book shows how a visual/multimodal lens enriches and extends what we already know about organization, organizations, and practices of organizing, but also how concepts from organization and management studies can be highly productive in further developing insights on visual and multimodal communication.

 

Due to its essentially interdisciplinary objectives, the book will prove inspiring for academics and scholars of management, the sociology of organizations as well as related disciplines such as applied linguistics and visual studies.

Managing Multiple Projects: How Project Managers Can Balance Priorities, Manage Expectations and Increase Productivity

Project management is changing. Rather than focusing solely on one large project, the majority of project managers are now expected to juggle multiple projects, which brings a different set of challenges.

From combining schedules to prioritising work and engaging stakeholders, this book clearly explains how to adapt your behaviour and techniques to successfully work on several projects at once.

Checklists for common tasks and adaptable templates of trackers and reports are combined with easily actioned exercises to improve processes. Managing Multiple Projects gives practitioners the tools they need to improve the chances of project success and maintain a work-life balance. Online resources include downloadable templates of productivity checklists and status reports.

Innovation as Usual: How to Help Your People Bring Great Ideas to Life

How do you get people to be more innovative every day? You need to build it into your organization s DNA. Otherwise, your team will view innovation as a side project and your efforts will fail. Innovation experts Paddy Miller and Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg say the way most leaders lead innovation is to organize one-off brainstorm meetings, idea jams, and off-sites. Instead, what you need to do is change the way people work. Innovation as Usual has six recommendations for you on how to support and manage daily work so that everyone understands the overarching goal of being more innovative, all of the time. They are: Focus: direct the search for innovation and help people focus on what matters Connect: help people connect outside the organization for new insight Tweak: make people test, challenge and improve their ideas continuously Select: help people evaluate and discard ideas continually Stealthstorm: help people navigate the politics of innovation inside the organization Persist: motivate innovators to keep going The authors share examples from a wide range of companies to show how the process works, including several new stories from Pfizer, Index Ventures, Lonza, Go Travel, Prehype, DSM and others. So cancel that off-site. Instead read Innovation as Usual to put innovation at the core of your company.

Contract Law: A Comparison of Civil Law and Common Law Jurisdictions

This text serves as an accessible introduction to the law of contract. The headings chosen for examination track the main points in the lifetime of a contract-from its formation, drafting, and onward to its eventual dissolution, whether this occurs due to the terms of the contract, the will of the parties, or because of a breach of the agreed terms. It also provides studies of other notable areas within the subject, such as third-party rights, damages, and equitable remedies. In distinction to other guides to contract law, this text provides a comparative analysis of the area, incorporating sources drawn from both the civil law tradition, characteristic of several nations within Continental Europe, as well as the Anglo-American common law tradition, with cases and legislation drawn from England and the United States of America. It also explores contract law in the unique context of so-called hybrid jurisdictions-those that incorporate elements of both the common law and civilian traditions. As business assumes a global dimension, knowledge of the operation of contract law across various legal traditions and national contexts is increasingly at a premium. This text enables the student to gain a coherent vision of contract law, as well as to speak confidently when discussing the intricacies of the subject.

***Amazon Best Seller***

Do you find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of issues escalated up to your desk?

Like most managers, you’re a great problem-solver. So what do you do when a team member brings you an issue? Yep, like most managers, automatic reflex kicks in, you dive straight into it and sort the issue out. Which is great for that one issue. But what about the 10s or 100s of other issues that arrive on your desk daily?

You know where this is going, don’t you? Lots of interruptions. Frustration. Decision fatigue. Drowning under the weight…Is this inevitable? As a manager, do you have to just put up with this?

You can coach your team members and empower them to sort out a chunk of their own issues. You can build their confidence and free them up.

More importantly, free you up!

Based on unique insights gained from working with hundreds of managers, and interweaving theory and real-world scenarios, follow Lisa and her team as you explore:

  • The 3 valid reasons of escalation
  • The steps of problem-solving (there’s more than you think!)

Gods of Management: The Four Cultures of Leadership

For over fifty years, Charles Handy has set the tone for leadership thinking. In this business classic, he lays out one of his most famous ideas: the four types of organisational culture, as exemplified by the Greek Gods.
Culture is central to a company’s efficiency and success, whether it is shaped by a Zeus-like central power or the task-oriented focus of Athena, by Apollo‘s hierarchical assignment of roles or the person-centred preference of Dionysus. Successful leaders know their own styles, and cultivate these qualities to create dynamic, productive teams that are top of their field.

Inclusive Talent Management: How Business can Thrive in an Age of Diversity

Organizations traditionally have had a clear distinction between their policies on diversity and inclusion and their talent management. The main driving force behind diversity and inclusion has been being seen to be a good employer, to be able to make claims in the annual report and to feel as though a positive contribution is being made to society. On the other hand, talent management activities have been driven by a real business need to ensure that the organization has the right people with the right skills in the right place to drive operational success. Inclusive Talent Management aligns talent management and diversity and inclusion, offering a fresh perspective on why the current distinction between them needs to disappear.

Featuring case studies from internationally recognised brands such as Goldman Sachs, Unilever, KPMG, Hitachi, Oxfam and the NHS, Inclusive Talent Management shows that to achieve business objectives and gain the competitive advantage, it is imperative that organizations take an inclusive approach to talent management. It puts forward a compelling and innovative case, raising questions not only for the HR community but also to those in senior management positions, providing the practical steps, global examples and models for incorporating diversity and inclusion activities into talent management strategy.

The McKinsey Way: Using the Techniques of the World’s Top Strategic Consultants to Help You and Your Business (MGMT & LEADERSHIP)

“If more business books were as useful, concise, and just plain fun to read as THE MCKINSEY WAY, the business world would be a better place.” –Julie Bick, best-selling author of ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW IN BUSINESS I LEARNED AT MICROSOFT.

“Enlivened by witty anecdotes, THE MCKINSEY WAY contains valuable lessons on widely diverse topics such as marketing, interviewing, team-building, and brainstorming.” –Paul H. Zipkin, Vice-Dean, The Fuqua School of Business

It’s been called “a breeding ground for gurus.” McKinsey & Company is the gold-standard consulting firm whose alumni include titans such as “In Search of Excellence” author Tom Peters, Harvey Golub of American Express, and Japan’s Kenichi Ohmae.

He shows you how McKinsey-ites think about business problems and how they work at solving them, explaining the way McKinsey approaches every aspect of a task:
How McKinsey recruits and molds its elite consultants;
How to “sell without selling”;
How to use facts, not fear them;
Techniques to jump-start research and make brainstorming more productive;
How to build and keep a team at the top its game;
Powerful presentation methods, including the famous waterfall chart, rarely seen outside McKinsey;
How to get ultimate “buy-in” to your findings;
Survival tips for working in high-pressure organizations.

Both a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most admired and secretive companies in the business world and a toolkit of problem-solving techniques without peer, THE MCKINSEY WAY is fascinating reading that empowers every business decision maker to become a better strategic player in any organization.

The New Leaders of Change: How Next Generation Leaders are Transforming Themselves, their Businesses and the World with Purpose and Empathy

Anyone who is part of the new generation of leaders, and all aspiring changemakers, should read this book.’
From the Foreword by Johannes Reck, CEO, Get Your Guide

THE NEW LEADERS OF CHANGE

Change in the 21st century is continuous, ubiquitous, and exponential. It can’t be managed with a mechanistic three-step or seven-step model – that’s ridiculous. Our changing world is simply too fast and too unpredictable for that. Twentieth century ways of leading just aren’t good enough for the 21st century. So where do you start if you want to lead change and transformation?

TOWARD PEOPLE-CENTERED LEADERSHIP

In The New Leaders of Change, Maitri O’Brien, drawing on her 25 years of international experience in Fortune 500 companies, shares her unique new approach to people-centered leadership.

After two years of intense research, involving in-depth interviews with more than 50 next generation leaders from around the world, the call-to-action is clear: you start with people. Because next generation leaders are transforming themselves, their businesses, and the world by putting people, planet, and humanity at the center of their leadership. They are leading with empathy, compassion, purpose, and courage.

IN SEARCH OF NEXT GENERATION LEADERS

Filled with riveting stories from the front-lines of real-world change and transformation, The New Leaders of Change is the missing manual for next generation leaders, leadership development professionals and CEOs of organisations facing exponential change. This book is a critical reminder that, in business, it is always people who drive change, innovation, and transformation.

PRAISE FOR THE NEW LEADERS OF CHANGE

The New Leaders of Change provides an in-depth view of how brilliant young leaders
lead – with passion and by taking their heart to work.’
Prof Dr Uwe Krueger, Temasek International

The New Leaders of Change not only provides rich and useful insights, it’s told against
a backdrop of an incredibly engaging personal story.’
Karen Gaydon, AS Equity Partners

The New Leaders of Change is an insightful and very timely book for leaders of all ages
who want to lead with purpose, for people and the planet. I found myself cheering.’
Armin Meier, Boyden, Switzerland

‘Maitri O’Brien inspires us to embrace our humanity.’

LOVED: How to Rethink Marketing for Tech Products (Silicon Valley Product Group)

Most tech companies get marketing wrong because they don’t know how to do product marketing right. The next in the bestselling SVPG series, LOVED shows what leaders like Apple, Netflix, Microsoft, and Salesforce do well and how to apply it to transform product marketing at your company.

The best products can still lose in the marketplace. Why? They are beaten by products with stronger product marketing. Good product marketing is the difference between “also-ran” products versus products that lead. And yet, product marketing is widely misunderstood. Although it includes segmenting customers, positioning your product, creating product collateral, and supporting sales teams, great product marketing achieves much more. It directs the best way to bring your product to market. It shapes what the world thinks about your product and category. It inspires others to tell your product’s story.

Part of the bestselling series including INSPIRED and EMPOWERED, LOVED explains the fundamentals of best-in-class product marketing for product teams, marketers, founders and any leader with a product and a vision.

Sharing her personal stories as a former product and marketing leader at Microsoft and Netscape, and as an advisor to Silicon Valley startups, venture capitalist, and UC Berkeley engineering graduate school lecturer, Martina Lauchengco distills decades of lessons gleaned from working with hundreds of companies to make LOVED the definitive guide to modern product marketing.

With dozens of stories from the trenches of market leaders as well as newer startups with products just beginning their journey, the book shows you:

  • the centrality of product marketing to any product’s success
  • the key skills and actions required to do it well
  • the four fundamentals of product marketing and how to apply them
  • how to hire, lead, and organize product marketing
  • how product marketers optimize crucial collaboration with other functions
  • one-sheet frameworks, tools and agile marketing practices that help simplify and elevate product marketing

LOVED is an invitation to rethink tired notions of product marketing and practice a more dynamic, customer and market-centric version that creates raving fans and helps products achieve their full market potential.

The Values Compass: [*THE SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS BESTSELLER*] What 101 Countries Teach Us About Purpose, Life and Leadership

–THE SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS BESTSELLER–

–Selected for the Thinkers50 Radar list–

–HIGHLY COMMENDED at the Business Book Awards 2021–


The Values Compass
 takes us into the hearts, minds, and traditions of the cultures and people of the world. It demonstrates how interconnected we are and how the divisions that exist between us stem from narrow self-interest rather than concern for the good of our human family. I hope that the book will contribute to making our world a happier place.’
The Dalai Lama

‘The Values Compass is a fresh, engaging and eye-opening guide to understanding ourselves and others in the most profound and practical ways.’
Deepak Chopra

Every day, whether we acknowledge it or not, we make decisions based on what we believe in. The choices, challenges, or opportunities facing us – and how we engage with them – in politics, family, relationships, work, and play reveal something important about our character, desires, and personality to ourselves and to others. When those values align and are shared by a single population, they have the power to transform a nation and teach the world valuable lessons about success.

In The Values Compass, Mandeep Rai explores this concept by taking 101 distinct countries and identifying a single key value in each that is represented throughout its history, geography, and culture in the hope that we may find a way to incorporate those values into our own lives. From India’s ‘faith’ to Vietnam’s ‘resilience’, Argentina’s ‘passion’ to Singapore’s ‘order’, Australia’s ‘mateship’ to Uganda’s ‘heritage’ and from Malta’s ‘community’ to Sri Lanka’s ‘joy’, we may all find something of ourselves in others and succeed together as a result.

This is an insightful and readable collection of profiles that open our eyes to the world around us, and in turn help us reflect on which values matter, last, and have the power to create change.

Productive Tensions: How Every Leader Can Tackle Innovation’s Toughest Trade-Offs (Management on the Cutting Edge)

How leaders can recast innovation’s toughest trade-offs–efficiency vs. flexibility, consistency vs. change, product vs purpose–as productive tensions. <p/>Why is leading innovation in today’s dynamic business environment so distressingly hit-or-miss? More than 90 percent of high-potential ventures don’t reach their projected targets. Surveys show that 80 percent of executives consider innovation crucial to their growth strategy, but only 6 percent are satisfied with their innovation performance. Should leaders aim for Steve Jobs-level genius, or shower their projects with resources, or lean in to luck and embrace uncertainty? None of the above, say Christopher Bingham and Rory McDonald. <p/>Drawing on cutting-edge research and probing interviews with hundreds of leaders across three continents, in Productive Tensions Bingham and McDonald find that the most effective leaders and successful innovators embrace the tensions that arise from competing aims: efficiency or flexibility? consistency or change? product or purpose? Bingham and McDonald spotlight eight critical tensions that every innovator must master, and they spell out, with dozens of detailed examples of both success and failure, how to navigate them. How do you excite customers about a product they’ve never imagined? When is it wise to accept what the data is telling you, and when should you ignore the data and plow forward anyway? How can you maintain stakeholders’ trust and support during radical unforeseen course corrections? Bingham and McDonald guide readers through innovation’s thorniest tensions, using examples drawn from the experience of organizations as varied as P&G, Instagram, the US military, Honda, In-N-Out Burger, Slack, Under Armour, and the snowboarding company Burton.

Tomorrow’s Capitalist: My Search for the Soul of Business

The core tenets of a capitalist system that dominated the world for more than a century are being challenged as never before. Narratives about the failures of capitalism, the greed of the 1 percent, and the blindness of corporations to public need have made their mark and are driving change. These aren’t the superficial cosmetic fixes that generated so much cynicism in the past, but a revolution in the way corporations are imagined and run.

Tomorrow’s Capitalist reveals how corporate CEOs-the ultimate pragmatists-realized that they could lose their “operating license” unless they tackle the fundamental issues of our time: climate, diversity and inclusion, and inequality and workforce opportunity. Responding to their employees and customers who are demanding corporate change, they have taken the lead in establishing the bold new principles of stakeholder capitalism, ensuring that for the first time in more than a half a century it is not just shareholders who have a say in how corporations are run.

Alan Murray vividly captures the zeitgeist of the real and compelling dynamic that is transforming much of the corporate world.

The Finance Book: Understand the numbers even if you’re not a finance professional

Shortlisted in the ‘Practical Manager’ category for the 2018 Management Book of the Year prize by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the British Library.

  • Translated into three languages.
  • Continual Best Seller (Amazon) & ‘Business Book of the Month’ on publication (WH Smith).

No knowledge required

The book is purposefully designed to be quick and easy to use with no previous knowledge required to comprehend the concepts. We “tell you what you need to know” to quickly “get up to speed” in core finance concepts.

A key feature of this book is that you do not have read it from cover to cover to make sense of finance. Each chapter is written as a “standalone” topic.  This enables you to dip in and dip out of chapters. Further, we have taken otherwise complex topics and broken them down into key concepts that are explained in concise, easy to read sections.

 

Practitioners not academics

Whilst not an academic book, it is also not a “simplistic” book.  It is a practical book because it has been written by practitioners. We include throughout this book our first-hand personal experiences gained from working in businesses across many industries and sectors, rather than replicating knowledge from academia.

In addition, the authors have spent countless hours instructing, teaching and training thousands of professionals from disciplines including marketing, sales, production, administration, HR and legal.

Focused on business application

The overwhelming majority of finance books available are better suited to trainee accountants because they take an academic approach to finance.  Whilst necessary for accountants, they immerse the reader in the “detail”.

The Finance Book is written for non-finance people like you. It is aimed at those who work or aspire to work in business.

It will help professionals in business or thinking about a career in business including board directors, business managers, MBA students, graduates and undergraduates.

 

Your book, your journey

To make the book easy to read, we have used a consistent format across chapters. Within each chapter there are multiple cross references (and links) to other relevant chapters as they occur. This will enable you to review chapters and make connections relevant to you. Allow your curiosity to determine your path through the book.

THE KNOWLEDGE AND TOOLS EVERY PROFESSIONAL NEEDS, TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS FOR THEIR BUSINESS

 

‘Essential reading for any non-finance ‭professional. This is an easy to read and ‭practical guide to the world of finance.’ ‭Paul Herman, Group CEO, Bluebox ‭Corporate Finance

‭‘A really helpful, well organised and easy to ‭understand primer and reference book for ‭those who aren’t accountants but still need ‭to understand the accounts.’ ‭Roger Siddle, Chairman, Cordium Group

Compliance Capitalism: How Free Markets Have Led to Unfree, Overregulated Workers (The Business, Management and Safety Effects of Neoliberalism)

In this book, Sidney Dekker sets out to identify the market mechanisms that explain how less government paradoxically leads to greater compliance burdens. This book gives shape and substance to a suspicion that has become widespread among workers in almost every industry: we have to follow more rules than ever―and still, things can go spectacularly wrong.

Much has been privatized and deregulated, giving us what is sometimes known as ‘new public management,’ driven by neoliberal, market-favoring policies. But, paradoxically, we typically have more rules today, not fewer. It’s not the government: it’s us. This book is the first of a three-part series on the effects of ‘neoliberalism,’ which promotes the role of the private sector in the economy. Compliance Capitalism examines what aspects of the compliance economy, what mechanisms of bureaucratization, are directly linked to us having given free markets a greater reign over our political economy. The book steps through them, picking up the evidence and levers for change along the way.

Dekker’s work has always challenged readers to embrace more humane, empowering ways to think about work and its quality and safety. In Compliance Capitalism, Dekker extends his reach once again, writing for all managers, board members, organization leaders, consultants, practitioners, researchers, lecturers, students, and investigators curious to understand the genuine nature of organizational and safety performance.

The McKinsey Way: Using the Techniques of the World’s Top Strategic Consultants to Help You and Your Business (MGMT & LEADERSHIP)

“If more business books were as useful, concise, and just plain fun to read as THE MCKINSEY WAY, the business world would be a better place.” –Julie Bick, best-selling author of ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW IN BUSINESS I LEARNED AT MICROSOFT.

“Enlivened by witty anecdotes, THE MCKINSEY WAY contains valuable lessons on widely diverse topics such as marketing, interviewing, team-building, and brainstorming.” –Paul H. Zipkin, Vice-Dean, The Fuqua School of Business

It’s been called “a breeding ground for gurus.” McKinsey & Company is the gold-standard consulting firm whose alumni include titans such as “In Search of Excellence” author Tom Peters, Harvey Golub of American Express, and Japan’s Kenichi Ohmae.

When Fortune 100 corporations are stymied, it’s the “McKinsey-ites” whom they call for help. In THE MCKINSEY WAY, former McKinsey associate Ethan Rasiel lifts the veil to show you how the secretive McKinsey works its magic, and helps you emulate the firm’s well-honed practices in problem solving, communication, and management.

He shows you how McKinsey-ites think about business problems and how they work at solving them, explaining the way McKinsey approaches every aspect of a task:
How McKinsey recruits and molds its elite consultants;
How to “sell without selling”;
How to use facts, not fear them;
Techniques to jump-start research and make brainstorming more productive;
How to build and keep a team at the top its game;
Powerful presentation methods, including the famous waterfall chart, rarely seen outside McKinsey;
How to get ultimate “buy-in” to your findings;
Survival tips for working in high-pressure organizations.

Both a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most admired and secretive companies in the business world and a toolkit of problem-solving techniques without peer, THE MCKINSEY WAY is fascinating reading that empowers every business decision maker to become a better strategic player in any organization.

Leading by Nature: The Process of Becoming A Regenerative Leader

We are in the midst of a civilization-wide transformation of the scale never seen before: halving carbon emissions by 2030, reversing natural habitat loss, overhauling social inequality, tackling the mental health and wellbeing pandemic, embracing the digital revolution, and dealing with rising volatility and turbulence across all aspects of society and working-life. No organization is spared.

Climate change, Covid and conflict; an increasingly dispersed multi-generational workforce that is crying out for meaning and belonging: The unrelenting pace of these leadership challenges is demanding an evolution in organizational thinking in response. The old Industrial-age of top down, organization-as-machine metaphor is breaking down and a new one is breaking through – the organization-as-living-system.

Now more than ever, organizations need to adapt to disruptive innovations and new ways of working while co-creating life-affirming futures for all. Today’s new-norm of unceasing transformation demands a new-norm in leadership and organizational development. Leading by Nature goes right to the heart of this agile living-systems approach, informed by the regenerative systems in the natural world to inspire practices, tools and techniques that will help us lead organizations capable of transforming and thriving in a fast-emerging future.

Author of four previous books and thought leader, Giles Hutchins, draws upon over 25 years experience in leadership and organizational development, and over 10 years of senior leadership coaching and regenerative leadership practice to apply an approach to next-stage future-fit business. This is a must-read for leaders interested in leading thriving organizations amid the increasingly volatile times ahead.

Complexity: A Key Idea for Business and Society (Key Ideas in Business and Management)

This book interprets insights from the complexity sciences to explore seven types of complexity better to understand the predictable unpredictability of social life. Drawing on the natural and social sciences, it describes how complexity models are helpful but insufficient for our understanding of complex reality.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the book develops a complex theory of action more consistent with our experience that our plans inevitably lead to unexpected outcomes, explains why we are both individuals and thoroughly social, and gives an account of why, no matter how clear our message, we may still be misunderstood. The book investigates what forms of knowledge are most helpful for thinking about complex experience, reflects on the way we exercise authority (leadership) and thinks through the ethical implications of trying to co-operate in a complex world. Taking complexity seriously poses a radical challenge to more orthodox theories of managing and leading, based as they are on assumptions of predictability, control and universality. The author argues that management is an improvisational practice which takes place in groups in a particular context at a particular time. Managers can influence but never control an uncontrollable world. To become more skilful in complex group dynamics involves taking into account multiple points of view and acknowledging not knowing, ambivalence and doubt.

This book will be of interest to researchers, professionals, academics and students in the fields of business and management, especially those interested in how taking complexity seriously can influence the functioning of businesses and organizations and how they manage and lead.

An incisive framework for companies seeking to increase their resilience

In The Black Swan Problem: Risk Management Strategies for a World of Wild Uncertainty, renowned risk and finance expert Håkan Jankensgård delivers an extraordinary and startling discussion of how firms should navigate a world of uncertainty and unexpected events.

  • Extending the usual academic focus on individual biases to analyze Swans from an organizational perspective and prime organizations to proactive rather than reactive action
  • Practical applications and tactics to mitigate Black Swan risks and protect corporate strategies against catastrophic losses and the collateral damage that they cause
  • Strategies and tools for turning Black Swan events into opportunities, reflecting the fact that resilience can be used for strategic advantage

Corporate Explorer: How Corporations Beat Startups at the Innovation Game

Corporate Explorers Transform Disruption Into Opportunity With This Proven Framework

Innovation used to be seen as a game best left to entrepreneurs, but now a new breed of corporate managers is flipping this logic on its head. These Corporate Explorers have the insight, resilience, and discipline to overcome the obstacles and build new ventures from inside even the largest organizations.

Corporate Explorers are part entrepreneurs, using innovation disciplines to jump start cutting-edge ideas, and part change leaders, capable of creating support for investment. They see that corporations already own the ideas, resources, and—critically—the talent to build new ventures. Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Bosch, LexisNexis, and Analog Devices enable managers to put these assets to use and gain an upper hand over startups that threaten to disrupt them.

Corporate Explorer is a guidebook to the practices that enable these managers to go from idea into action. It demonstrates how success is not only possible but may offer entrenched companies better odds than venture-capital backed startups.

This actionable and proven framework explains how managers can become successful corporate innovators; it includes tools to:

  • Learn how to apply innovation practices with greater discipline
  • Turn great ideas into a full-time job as an innovation leader
  • Experiment with and scale original business models
  • Transform innovation programs into a thriving source of new business
  • Attract, retain, and motivate entrepreneurial talent
  • Energize employees by creating a realistic way to innovate

These lessons come from the trailblazers of corporate innovation—Andrew Binns (Change Logic), Charles O’Reilly (Stanford Graduate School of Business), and Michael Tushman (Harvard Business School)—who have decades of experience helping entrepreneurial-minded executives activate employees to become Corporate Explorers.

Entrepreneurs take notice—it’s time for Corporate Explorers to set the pace and chart the course for disruption.

Hotel Revenue Management: The Post-Pandemic Evolution to Revenue Strategy

This book guides the reader from the building blocks of revenue management, to pricing science and merchandising, and to broader issues of setting objectives in support of a revenue strategy.

The discipline is evolving, and that evolution has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders in hotel revenue management, and more broadly in sales & marketing, need to understand these changes, and lead and adapt accordingly. This will require a strong foundation in analytics–not just modeling, but also business analytics in support of a holistic strategy.

As more of the tactics of revenue management are executed through automation, and powered by machine learning, revenue managers will become more focused on strategy and will need to think about revenue management in the context of marketing, loyalty, and distribution.

How the Future Works: Leading Flexible Teams To Do The Best Work of Their Lives

Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today Bestseller

Unlock the power of flexible work with this practical “how-to” guide from the leadership of Slack and Future Forum

The way we work has changed. The era of toiling from nine-to-five, five-days-a-week in the office is now a relic of the past, and is being replaced by a better way—flexible work. But flexibility means a lot more than a day or two a week to “work from home”: 93% of your employees want more flexibility in when, not just where, they work. They want choice and they are leaving their roles to find it. The most successful leaders will go much further than offering occasional remote workdays—they will redesign every aspect of how work gets done, from defining how they measure organizational success to training their managers to make it happen.

How the Future Works: Leading Flexible Teams to Do The Best Work of Their Lives offers a blueprint for using flexible work to unlock the potential of your people. The book offers the steps necessary to building the new principles and guardrails to empower flexible, high-performing teams. And it teaches readers to lead with purpose, to manage and measure differently, and to believe that by letting go, they’ll get more back than they thought possible.

How the Future Works explains how to:

  • Establish leadership principles, commitments, and outcomes for truly flexible teamwork
  • Measure and assess productivity in a flexible workplace
  • Reskill managers to ensure a level playing field for all employees
  • Implement the infrastructure necessary to make flexible work successful

Using original research from Future Forum, a consortium by Slack, and global case studies from leading companies such as Levi Strauss & Co., Genentech, Royal Bank of Canada, and IBM, How the Future Works offers concrete solutions and practical steps for building high functioning teams of talented, engaged people by providing them with the flexibility and choice they need to do their best work.

Expand: Stretching the Future By Design

Today, it can seem as if the world has nothing but problems. And more than ever the boundaries of those problems are expanding in terms of the speed, scale, and impact by which they can alter business conditions, public governance, entire societies, the health of our planet, and the quality of our lives. Meeting these growing challenges requires ambitious new ways of designing solutions. With Expand: Stretching the Future By Design, authors Jens Martin Skibsted, a multiple-award winning designer, entrepreneur, and design philosopher, and Christian Bason, political scientist and CEO of the Danish Design Centre, take readers beyond “design thinking” to challenge current habits and carve out new space for more sustainable innovation. From transforming the ways we do business and reimagining health care, to creating planet-restoring housing and humanizing our digital lives in an age of AI, Expand explores how expansive thinking across six key areas―time, proximity, value, life, dimensions, and sectors―can provide radical, useful solutions to a whole host of current problems around the globe. With powerful real-world examples, the book challenges our freewheeling belief in technological determinism and its insensitivity toward ethics, humanity, and the environment. Expand is the first book to not just critique design thinking, but welcome it as a starting point for an ambitious, wide-ranging tale of how to expand and think beyond it. The best way to predict the future is to design it. Expand is the book that shows us how.
