The Book Corporate Management - The Most Successful Techniques

Corporate Management - The Most Successful Techniques
Quick Overview

Corporate Management by Bogdan Nikolov is an atypical look at the technology of establishing a long-lasting and highly organized business.  The presentation is a very sincere insider's view and combines the author’s characteristic jocular tone with a serious, in-depth discussion of the key issues.  The book also offers an original self-assessment test, where everyone can evaluate, whether they would have a successful future as a manager.

The emphasis is on the themes that every manager should know.  The recommendations are clearly presented throughout even though some of the more delicate points are hinted at.  After finishing the book, the reader undoubtedly asks themselves why these clearly logical themes, which are business-as-usual in successful companies, are not implemented in the majority of organizations.   An example from chapter five highlights this:

Larger Excerpt

How much must an effective manager know about the law?  The detailed answer is:  As much as a competent mother has to understand about the medical care of her young child.  In a word — lots.  Parents must know the everyday aspects of caring for their children’s health without being experts in special procedures, such as surgery, for instance.  Similarly, a manager must know how to act correctly from a legal point of view in everyday situations, without the need to know in detail, for example, how to initiate a civil proceeding correctly.

The content is divided into the following chapters: (1) Introduction, (2) Sales, (3) Finance and Financial Control, (4) Accounting, (5) Legal Issues, (6) Process Approach, (7) Working with People, (8) Relationships with Suppliers, (9) Theory of Decision Making, (10) Information Technology, (11) Government Influence on Business and (12) The Final Word.  Caricatures are used to underline some of the concepts.

The ideas flow easily and the book can almost be read ‘in one breath’ - 240 pages in about a week.  The ideas that the book presents continue to inspire the reader for a long time after.
