Lawrence  Stern Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Lawrence Stern

Having worked as a stage manager in the Los Angeles area, I transitioned into directing. I found that those assigned to work for me as stage manager had no clue as to how to do the job. I gathered examples of my past work and formed a rough manual on stage management. That's how this book was born.
