The Secrets of Management
By: Botha Laubscher

The Secrets of Management by award-winning business consultant and author Botha Laubscher challenges the traditional management functions model and suggests an innovative new solution.
Management is the most important resource in any business says consultant and innovator Laubscher in his fascinating new book, The Secrets of Management. In clear, easy-to-follow prose, Laubscher outlines a revolutionary new business model, consisting of planning, designing, operating and the management of culture, climate and knowledge. By understanding this new model, businesses can not only perform better – they can outperform the competition.
Laubscher claims that the traditional model focuses mainly on the management of people, while in practice a manager is mostly responsible for a certain business process or processes, the outcome thereof, as well as the components that support or enable the business processes. People are only one of these many components. The result of his approach is a more complete, more practical and better management functions model.
The owner of his own business consulting firm, Laubscher has used his expertise to devise a model of the management functions that may be controversial—but it works. Packed with information, The Secrets of Management by Botha Laubscher is as essential guide for any business manager.
