Clear introduction to a range of tools and when they could be used. I have found them useful on several occasions. The last was analysing why the products of a particular organisation were failing and what needed to be done. I used Ansoff's product/market grid, Porter's five forces of competitive analysis, and his generic competitive strategies, a modified form of a learning organisations competences. It came up with the equivalent of the organisation not being able to organise a drinking party in a brewery, never learning from it and it should get out of the market or face big losses. Needless to say it didn't take the advice and made big losses and has not learned from it. Read page 150 to find out why... hint its a drama queen organisation. ( )

Management models - love them or hate them, they're at the heart of management thinking and practice. They have two main purposes: to provide a framework for improving business performance; and to confuse the uninitiated with buzzwords and acronyms.

You've heard of balanced scorecards, CRM, just-in-time and SWOT? How about the Deming cycle, parenting advantage or socio-technical organizations? Even if you have, can you describe them clearly and do you know how you can use them in your business?

Key Management Models takes the reader through each of the essential management tools in a clear, structured and practical way. It provides comprehensive coverage of the main tools, and of the models developed by the Gods of management thinking: Belbin, Handy, Kotter and Mintzberg.
