The Manager's Kitbag

 

Book reviews > The Manager's Kitbag

 

Tony Kemmer, (2005). The Manager's Kitbag, Management Books 2000, Cirencester

 

When the author initially emailed me about this book I was a bit offhand - after all, I did a master's degree in management 25 years ago and have studied and practiced it ever since. What else is there to learn, I thought. As it happens, I learned quite a bit from this little book as well as getting good reinforcement of things I have discovered, often through painful experience.

The book is arranged in sections such as strategy, leadership, change, influencing, teams and so on. Each section is then composed of snippets of wisdom, one per page. The result is a book full of pages that make you think 'aha' and 'oh yes, of course!' and 'that's a good idea'.

So how might it be even better? There's lots of wry cartoons which do lighten things up, but some of which could be replaced by diagrams and charts.

Overall, though, this is an intelligent and wise collation of practical experience that is very highly recommended to new managers. There is also plenty here to keep the more experience manager thinking.

A book stuffed full of very sensible wisdom by an experience manager. Wonderful stuff for the younger manager and very good reminders for the rest of us.
