Too often, people are promoted to management not because of leadership skills but for professional skills. BUM Books and Blog is a website that supports management and leadership growth and development.
Historically we have found, in any business or service, three critical areas of concern, project management, supply chain management, and management and leadership in general, are intertwined such that the cause and effect of problem identification, solutions, and implementation are overshadowed by departmental independence and egos rather than realizing when one entity is affected by something others are affected as well. This website provides a blog pointing out the issues causing management and leadership issues and then speaking to the solutions to overcome management and leadership problems (many of which are social media crates) with practical tools and techniques to support managerial and leadership growth and development.
