Business book of the year winners announced

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has announced the winners of this year’s Business Book of the Year competition.

The competition is sponsored by Henley Business School and run in association with the British Library.   

This year’s overall winner was The Management Book: How to Manage Your Team to Deliver Outstanding Results written by the entrepreneur Richard Newton.  Newton identified his top three tips: 

·         The management role is made, not given. You need to shape it rather than let it shape you.

·         If you let your team be successful, you will be successful.

·         Being a manager is something to be proud of. Fundamentally every organisation builds from its management.”
