About the Book
it shouldn't be that way. For some 75 years we have had management and leadership researchers, teachers and practitioners showing that PPM is ultimately destructive of organisations and the people that comprise them. We also know that PPM results in lower productivity and profitability than would otherwise be possible.
Yet it persists!
This book is a selection of blogs over the period 2009-2012. It provides examples of PPM (P... Poor Management) across a wide range of areas and explores both why this persists and why it should be removed. The book provides clear guidelines as to how we can remove this curse that afflicts so many people and organisations.
