This work offers a summary of the book"ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW IN BUSINESS I LEARNED AT MICROSOFT: Insider Strategies to Help You Succeed"by Julie Bick.
Microsoft is one of the successful companies in the world, and is often considered to be a shining example of a business thatis able to change quickly and effectively to accommodate shifts in the market. The intense, dynamic working environment is filled with highly motivated and hard-working individuals, making it a superb place to learn strong management skills.
With her experience as a senior product manager for Microsoft, Julie Bick brings Microsoft's management strategies under the microscope to identify what works and what doesn't.
She outlines all she has learnt on running a business, being a good manager, being a strong communicator and managing a career-all lessons learnt at Microsoft. Each section is broken down into simple and actionable lessons, from how to give constructive feedback to always keeping an up-to-date resume. Whilst an experienced manager might find this summary a little obvious, it is certainly a good starting point for an aspiring or less experienced manager, or someone in the early stages of their career.
