Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The IPD core management standards define the essentials for competently managing and developing people, and are compatible with an N/SVQ at level 4 in management. This book describes and explains the nature of managerial work. It examines: how the work environment functions at all levels; the purpose of organisational structure and culture; the effect of power and authority on individuals; and conflict and politics within the workplace.
