The productivity gap between US and UK managers is 31% in entrepreneurship skills. The gap has widened over the past years, as US managers have a higher level of knowledge about business subjects than their UK counterparts.
We need new ways to improve this gap, like dedicated advice for entrepreneurs from top management experts.
According to the McKinsey Global Institute, 15% of executives feel that they need new knowledge or skills. As the world becomes increasingly digitized, companies have an ever-growing demand for employees who can be called upon in a matter of minutes. Companies are no exception to this demand and thus are investing heavily into training and education in order to help their employees progress.
Some books for managers that focus on some specific business topics are:
Books are helpful to managers who are faced with a huge amount of knowledge to learn. It is very difficult for them to know how to engage with all the new knowledge that comes with every technological change. Meanwhile, they must also be able to keep up with the demand for courses and certification programs in their area of expertise.
This book provides a step by step approach on how books can be used in management training programs, and cover such topics as: “Who is my manager?”, “What technical skills do I need?”, “How do I communicate my expectations?”
A book is a great tool for managers, who have time constraints and need to work on multiple tasks. It provides them with the opportunity to be productive, focus on their tasks and get the job done. However, it can also be a burden; a significant amount of time has been wasted in reading long books. Therefore, it is important for managers to find new approaches towards improving their productivity.
In today’s competitive business environment, businesses need to have a defined quality profile. Managers are not just in charge of planning and executing the tasks, but also of ensuring that every detail gets a proper attention and is well within their scope.
Companies want to ensure that their managers remain productive and competent at all times – by putting them on the right books. For this purpose it is crucial to give them relevant resources for learning new material, reviewing old ones, and working on projects with detailed specifications.
At first glance this could be seen as an easy solution given how much time managers spend on reading books in the office. However when we look more closely at it we realize that clearly this would never work out precisely as expected. Why? Because there would be no need for someone else to read.
A book can be thought of as a resource, which helps you learn and gain knowledge. In the early part of the century, people used to buy books for their personal knowledge or to study new subjects at college. We are now coming to the age where we can easily access information anywhere and anytime through our digital devices.
With all these changes, we should not think that this ‘book business’ will be dead any time soon. The common thinking is that books are just a good idea for school students but for adults it’s different – they want to get more out of them by taking them with them everywhere they go on their mobile device or tablet computer too. Books are still useful for beginners but as you progress in your career expect.
