About this book


This book meets the demand for a straightforward but critical guide to some of the main theories and practices of management. At a time when the idea of the 'practitioner-manager' is taking hold, each social worker is expected to plan, manage time, co-ordinate and monitor services and supervise other staff. These topics plus others from performance appraisal, leadership styles and managing the introduction of change are covered using illustrative case material. Throughout, the need for principled management is emphasised.
