Help is at hand to brush up on management and learning skills

Busy managers don’t often have time for lots of reading to refresh or update their skills. That’s why The Manager’s Good Study Guide, published by The Open University, is designed as a handy reference manual for the home or office. It is also suitable for those who are returning to adult vocational education and want to brush up those rusty learning skills.

The book provides managers with a wealth of information on transferable management learning skills and management concepts, tools and techniques.

Author Sheila Tyler, Senior Lecturer in Management Development at the OU Business School said: “Almost all study skills are ones you need in your everyday professional life. For example, the writing skills you may need for a course assignment are just as relevant when you write reports at work. The basic management concepts, tools and techniques in the book are self-explanatory and form the basic kit every manager should have.”

The book is aimed both at managers who are following a formal programme of study or those who want to take a more self directed approach to professional improvement. Now in its third edition, the book will help readers to use persuasive arguments; handle numbers and information effectively; write fluent and forceful reports; use and present data and information clearly and work with others.

The Managers Good Study Guide can be purchased from Open University Worldwide, details right.
