When facing a difficult management challenge, wouldn't it be great if you could turn to a panel of experts to help guide you to the right decision?

Drawn from the pages of Harvard Business Review, these interactive, solutions-oriented guides allow readers to access the wisdom of leading experts as they tackle familiar and perplexing business situations. These engagingly written books will help managers improve problem-solving skills and make better judgment calls under fire. Getting people with very different backgrounds and perspectives to work together productively is a huge challenge that every manager in our global workplace will face. This book places managers in the crosshairs of vexing situations ranging from gender and racial bias to a “ mommy-track” backlash to culture wars in a newly merged company— and helps them find their way to a workable solution.
