Robert Heller is himself a prolific author of management books. The first, The Naked Manager, published in 1972, established Heller as an iconoclastic, wide-ranging guide to managerial excellence -- and incompetence. Heller has drawn on the extensive knowledge of managers and management that he acquired as the founding editor of Management Today, Britain's premier business magazine, which he headed for 25 years. Books such as The Supermanagers and In Search of European Excellence address the ways in which the latest ideas on change, quality, and motivation are providing new routes to business success. In 1990 Heller wrote Culture Shock, one of the first books to describe how IT would revolutionize management. Since then, as writer, lecturer, and consultant, Heller has continued to tell managers how to "Ride the Revolution," the title of his 2000 book, written with Paul Spenley. His books for Dorling Kindersley's Essential Managers series are international bestsellers.
Robert Heller was born in 1932.

Reviews - What do customers think about How to Delegate (Essential Managers Series)?
Reminders and wholesome advice Jul 21, 2001
Essential Managers books can be overly simple and a bit stiff. Yet, most of the books take a considered, reasonable approach to management topics that I find refreshing. I appreciate the old-fashioned but extremely common-sense approach Heller and Hindle take in this particular book, which doesn't pander to the now-common "throw it into the team and let them hash it out" approach to getting the job done.
How to delegate is a must to have on your shelf when you must confront serious basic problems focusing your direct reports on the work at hand. Though I would not use the actual delegation form suggested in this book, the concept has proved useful over and over again.
Like all of the Essential Manager books, Dorling Kindersley provides a wonderful, simple user interface, with great formating and lots of charts, diagrams, suggested forms, etc. I advise you to get it, read it, and keep it where you can see it when you start to pull your hair out.
