This book shows that in today’s business world managers can only successfully lead with the active cooperation and consent of their staff. It presents a practical, four-pronged approach to successful management, drawing on the authors’ combined research, consulting and managerial experience in more than twenty countries. Once a manager gets the four main ingredients right – (1) getting things under control; (2) establishing expectations; (3) running interference; and (4) developing people – everything else falls into place. Far from being unpleasant and stressful, managing others becomes rewarding and even fun. The book concludes by explaining how to use the four ingredients to ensure that your own manager is also managing you effectively. “If you have time for only one management book in your life, Management by Permission would be an outstanding choice.” Greg Thompson, President, Markel Specialty "In this readable and practical book the authors spell out the key challenges facing managers and how they can address them. The central question is how you win permission to manage – in straightforward language this book shows you how." Rob Goffee, Emeritus Professor, London Business School “A page-turner ... a strong candidate for ‘Management Book of the Year.’” Professor Stephen J. Perkins, Dean, London Guildhall Faculty of Business & Law “A ‘must read’ for anyone on the line management ladder.” Dr Janine-Nicole Desai, Regional HR Director, Hilton Worldwide

Government Information Management in the 21st Century provides librarians, information professionals, and government information policy leaders with a comprehensive and authoritative state-of-the-art review of current issues in government information management with a global perspective. The widespread use of the Internet to provide government information and services has altered the landscape dramatically for those who organize, store, and provide access to government content. Technical challenges include digital preservation, authentication, security, and accessibility for a diverse user base. Management challenges include changes to costs, workflow, staff skills and resources, and user expectations. Public policies based on distributed paper collections must also change to address issues that are inherent to digital, networked, public content; such issues include the maintenance of personal privacy, re-use of government information, and the digital divide. The authors in this timely book are practitioners, scholars, and government officials. Together they provide an informed look at how managing government information is being tested at a time of rapid change. Part I addresses key issues for public, academic, and government libraries in organizing and providing access to government information. Part II features chapters on the diverse information issues facing governments, such as managing Freedom of Information requirements, opening government data to the public, and deploying new online technologies.

Management styles have changed dramatically over the past century. In this insightful, often irreverent book, a veteran manager talks about these changes and how managers and supervisors need to tailor their own styles to those of their team. Educators and trainers teach prospective managers how to manage a process or a budget. But left in the dark is how to manage people-and in the end, your success as a manager depends on how well you manage others. The author makes a case for "Consensus Management," which provides strong leadership and directions while allowing employees to participate in the decision-making process.
