BOOKCASE: Management Bites: The bite-sized guide to being a better manager

• Angela Atkins
• Harper Collins
• RRP: $24.99

Billed as offering practical management training and techniques in bite-size chunks for anyone who manages, or wants to manage, people, Management Bites is self-study guide which can be worked through as and when needed.
Broken into 24 ‘bites’ from job descriptions, team building and delegation to meetings, discipline and restructuring, each section contains real-life examples, discussion of options and questions for readers/managers to work through on their way to finding solutions.
The book takes ‘common sense’ rather than theoretical or academic approach to becoming better manager but this is no bad thing. As New Zealand written book, it also contains useful local information which makes refreshing change from overseas content and contexts.
Author Angela Atkins has over 12 years’ experience in human resources and training across industries including local government, tertiary, retail and financial services.
I’d say recent graduates and those
new to management would benefit from this book, while more senior counterparts might find it little basic.
