Anyone recommend any decent Management Development books? Ideally i'd like one that is fairly easy to read and not a huge slog if possible

    There are a wealth to choose from. For basic techniques you might try A Guide to Management Development Techniques by Ken Fee. An old favourite written for managers and recently revamped is A Manager’s Guide to Self Development by Mike Pedler, John Burgoyne, and Tom Boydell.

  2. Good Book
    Although it was written for managers in the voluntary sector “Just About Managing”
    by Sandy Merritt Adirondack is an excellent book for new managers. It’s easy to understand and broken into logical segments that you can dip into as you need them.

    It’s a practical and comprehensive introduction to management and, after all, the issues of managing people, time, resources, meetings, conflict, discipline etc. are the same whatever sector you work in.

  3. too many to choose from!
    Hi Howard,
    Depends what it is you are trying to achieve and the level you are currently at.
    If its behavioural leadership outcome based then the best book I have read in ages is by Marshall Goldsmith – What got you here, won’t get you there.
    Good luck

    Am away from my home/library, but there are a couple of publications called/on theme of The Naked Leader which are good reference and dip in and out of books capturing best practice, latest thinking, and, to my mind, very readable!

    I’d agree with Graham: A Manager’s Guide to Self Development by Mike Pedler, John Burgoyne, and Tom Boydell. Also Management Pocket books at: http://www.pocketbook.co.uk/ . Simple, straightforward, common sense techniques – useful for managers development and reseraching/outlining workshops/learning events. Rob Parker.
