The bestseller that revolutionized management's vision ofitself

In the mid-1980s, the notion that the most successful managers areno longer heroic, but share power and responsibility, was sorevolutionary that it bordered on heresy. But the ideas championedby David Bradford and Allan Cohen in Managing for Excellence provedso effective that, virtually overnight, thousands of skepticalupper-level managers became true believers.

Managing for Excellence isn't just for CEOs, presidents, andveeps-the battle-tested methods laid out in this book help middlemanagers turn the strategic designs of upper management intoreality. Bradford and Cohen reveal how great managers succeed bybringing out the best in their employees. They show managers howto:
* Develop a cohesive team that jointly owns critical managementissues
* Deal with difficult problems head-on and make core decisionsthrough consensus
* Encourage healthy competition against objective standards ofexcellence
* Be decisive leaders while encouraging input from teammembers
* Manage daily procedures, adapt to change, and maintain a visionof the future simultaneously
