Innovation, consistently high standards and speed are a necessity in the competitive environment of today`s business world. New executives are expected to move forward

with their own agendas and make their mark within as little as 18 months. However, it is often forgotten that these agendas need the support of key people, and as a new manager, you will have to gain and retain this support in order to achieve success.


Once in the job, the new executive will be faced with many questions such as:


- Who are the key players within the company?

- Which task must take priority?

- Which decisions need to be taken immediately

- Which can be postponed?

- What is expected of me?

- Will my colleagues support me in my objectives?


These questions will all have to be answered - and quickly. If you are a new manager, whatever the circumstances of your appointment, this book identifies all the problems you are likely to face and shows you how to deal with them.

This is essential reading for every newly appointed senior manager who needs to make an impact.
