This series is designed for supervisors and front line managers and has been re-written to support the latest Management Standards from the Management Charter Initiative who have provided the Foreword. Each book provides the knowledge and understanding required for the core and major options associated with the NVQ/SVQ3 level qualifications in Supervisory Management and is written in a manner that links learning with the supervisor/front line manager's work experience. As such it also supports non-competence programmes such as the NEBSM Introductory and Full Certificate programmes in Supervisory Management.

It then considers the internal relationships between operations, marketing, personnel, etc. within organizations.
