Introduction to the Books by this Author

THE AUTHOR ADOPTED THE FOLLOWING CONCEPT IN ALL HIS BOOKS:

to save time of managers who work under time pressure and time-frames
all his books have comprehensive index for easy location of topics
adopt an easy-to-read style of writing to prevent readers becoming bored
managers need updated information to make good decisions
real-life worked examples are better than a lot words of explanation
explanations must be precise but comprehensive: in short sentences
the book must not waste the time of managers with too much details
avoid legal jargons - instead, explain the topics in layman's language

The above concept was adopted based on the opportunity the author had in working/discussing with hundreds of officers/managers in various organisations, having started his first employment in February 1960, thus spanning over a period of more than 55 years, consisting of the period in THE FEDERAL TREASURY, MINISTRY OF FINANCE, the INLAND REVENUE DEPARTMENT (now IRBM), external audits of hundreds of companies during his 6 years in Kuala Lumpur, Brunei, Kota Kinabalu, Ipoh and Penang offices of COOPERS & LYBRAND (now PRICEWATERHOUSECOOPERS), an international audit firm, and at board level in three multinational manufacturing companies for over 20 years as finance director.

He observed that, as managers get higher and higher in the hierarchy of management, they have little time for details due to their wider span of responsibilities. Managers -

(1) want to have a precise but comprehensive background information;
(2) want to know the problem, which requires their decision, in a nutshell; and
(3) want to be provided with the recommended solution to the problem.


ALL THE BOOKS WRITTEN BY THIS AUTHOR, FOLLOW THESE 3 ELEMENTS:
TO SAVE THE TIME OF MANAGERS IN THEIR DECISION-MAKING PROCESS.
