Business success depends on effective management of people, and that means getting both the strategies and the details right.

Get More ‐ and More Results ‐ from Your People and Get More ‐ and More Value ‐ from Your People argue that it does not work when “directors issue edicts that their companies must become more customer focused, more quality conscious or genuinely open to talent from all backgrounds”.

• build strong teams, set challenging objectives and constantly monitor progress against targets;

• encourage suggestions from employees and get the key messages across to them;
