There's a talent war on, and people are the greatest asset. They are at the heart of corporate strategy, and every manager knows that people management is too important to leave to HR. Likewise, HR managers know that if they can't show how their department contributes to corporate strategy and success, their function can easily be outsourced. The need for complete mastery of people management skills has never been greater. Written by a world-class line up of business school thinkers (from INSEAD and Wharton, among others) and business practitioners, Mastering People Management provides managers with the ideas and techniques to unleash the true value of their greatest asset. This is the single-source guide to becoming a master of people management.
