Free eBook: The 6 New Management Imperatives

A few months ago I introduced the 6 New Management Imperatives. Since then, I’ve written posts for each of the six imperatives.

As with my 6 Laws Of Customer Experience, I decided to pull the content together in a mini book. It’s called “The 6 New Management Imperatives: Leadership Skills For A Radically Changed Business Environment (.pdf).”

Since it’s not a novel (only 16 pages), I’m giving it away for free. Just click on the cover and print it out or save it to your computer.

Go ahead and share this book(let) with as many people as you’d like!

The bottom line: Hopefully this book is worth more than it’s price.

  1. Bruce- As we all learn to move from top down to bottom-up organizing models, I find it really useful to put both the customer and the employee at the bulls-eye of any audience target or – even more importantly – strategic plan. Now, with this excellent compliment to The 6 Laws of Customer Experience, you’ve provided a very succinct summary of why and how to do it. Thanks. (btw, I blogged about this e-book:
