The book is a compilation of insights on management practices in industries observed, conceived and practiced in India and abroad. It covers management of machines, materials and men. Some other equally important topics on the fringe, like management of productivity, management of infrastructure and waste management have also been covered in the book.
Breaking from the convention, the author has taken liberty to include chapters on Science of Management, Knowledge Management, Making of a Manager, and Stray Thoughts on Management.

The most challenging aspect of management is how to engage people effectively to deliver in a consistent and innovative way. Exposure to various psychometric tools, developed by the behavioural scientists over a period of time, is of great value to the individual and the organization to assess internal mechanism so that reality on the people front can be understood and put to various practices. The book deals extensively with these features as well.
