Pfeffer is the Dean of the People part of management, which is where we spend a lot of our time as well. This book lays out how to make things happen, step by step - how to analyze your situation, assess your strengths and weaknesses, whom to align with, whom to develop better relationships with. It's so tactical, with help every step of the way, we wish we'd written it ourselves. MUST READ for Senior Managers, Directors and entry level VPs in large organizations. If you're competing for a promotion with someone who uses these concepts, they will bury you.
