Managerial Skills for Non-MBAs: A Guide for Corporate Heads with non-MBA Background
New Delhi (India), March 7: The general perception of the public regarding the persons heading manufacturing and other business sectors is that all of them will have a business degree from a reputed institution. But this is not the actual scenario in the corporate field. Many of the corporate heads have not necessarily gone through a management course. Such managers normally are those who have come to a head of the unit rising from lower levels with their performance and hard work. They usually learn management by trial and error, committing mistakes and applying common sense. Managerial Skills for Non-MBAs, written by Vijay Behere, aims at providing such managers useful tips which may help them make the right decisions in various situations and find solutions to the problems faced.
