Management by objectives. Management by exception. Management by fear. There are several ways you can manage a company. Jan Pompe has devised a light-hearted way to discuss management issues. Based on experiences from everyday life, he highlights issues that managers have to deal with. In his own wit he explains how simple issues are made complex while it’s easy to find a solution with a clear mind. An important part of this book is dedicated to his travel experiences in America, the land of free enterprise.
