Do you believe in action-oriented planning, the speedy execution of ideas and realistic goal-setting in business management? So do the authors of this book-and that's why they've developed this fun, innovative evaluation tool that any business can use to assess its own operations and identify weak spots and trouble areas.

Management Golf has been arranged to resemble a round of golf: 18 of the most important business factors were selected to match the 18 holes in a golf game. Topics such as technology, strategy, resources, finance and customer service each get a score, and a graphic layout of each hole is shown at the end of each chapter. When you're done playing the game, it's time to figure out your handicap-the factors you need to work on to get your company playing "above par."

Once you know your score and your handicap, you can address the real challenge of this book-using what you've discovered about the inner workings of your company to boost innovation and creativity among your management team and make the business run better than it ever has before. As a game, Management Golf is great fun. As a self-assessment tool for your business, it's invaluable!
