Fredmund Malik, a Swiss management expert, eviscerates much of common practice in large corporations without seeming angry, just a bit cantankerous. Malik’s take on meetings? Get rid of them. Performance reviews? Twaddle. Managers’ pep talks aimed at building enthusiasm? Don’t waste your time. Malik pokes holes in conventional wisdom and offers commonsense alternatives. getAbstract recommends his guide to managers who’d like to rethink ordinary practices. The original edition, published in German, is regarded as a management classic.
