There has been a long-standing debate in the management field about whether effective management is an art or a science. Latham emphasizes the role that research plays in successfully hiring and managing employees. Drawing on this research and supporting it with real world examples of successful management practices, he discusses management techniques for successful hiring, motivating, training, coaching, and appraising employees.
