Management Book of the Year 2013 shortlist announced
The era of 'Management 2.0' with fast-paced technological change, flatter workplace structures and a sluggish economic climate means that a new kind of manager is now needed.
The titles shortlisted emphasised how managers need to be less controlling and more coaching in their approach in order to get the most out of their employees and to encourage innovation and growth.
All the need-to-know topics for today's managers are covered including big data, innovation and decision-making.
There were 142 books entered into this year's competition across five categories, which are:
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Practical Manager
- The New Manager
- The Commuter's Read
- Management and Leadership textbook
The winners of the five categories and the overall winner will be announced on 3rd February 2014.
