The Hopeless, Hapless and Helpless Manager by Adrian Furnham
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An exploration of the dark side of management. The sequel to "The Psychology of Managerial Incompetence", it condemns incompetence and under-educated, misinformed, egocentric and fundamentally deluded human beings who end up as managers causing misery and poverty to millions. Adrian Furnham takes a critical look at management hype and consultant flim-flam. In the first section, "Millennium Management Myopia", over 50 topics are arranged in dictionary order in humorous and challenging bite-sized essays. The second part of the book contains adaptations of actual military appraisal forms (from military jargon to management-speak). These reveal some of the more common and debilitating facets of the incompetent manager. The final section features a dozen self-scoring quizzes. For instance, are you left- or right-handed? Do you have high or low emotional intelligence? What is your attitude to money? The book is designed to be both educational and entertaining.
