Book Description

This study, originally published in 1990, introduces a rich array of approaches to defining and developing the competency of managerial performance. Indeed, the authors are not afraid to cross swords with each other over a number of controversial issues. They provide a stimulating and often contentious overview of the best ways to develop and use managerial profiles.

This book will reveal to senior managers and management developers how competencies can be used as a strategic weapon to improve a range of activities including assessment, management development and leadership planning.
