This is a timely book, useful to students and practitioners who are interested in social work management.
For the UK, this publication is timely and relevant to the new developments in social work Post Qualifying training where a new Leadership and Management pathway has been established.
The topics covered range from managing change and the impact of new technologies to ethical issues for social workers and managers to consider. Case histories are used liberally to help illustrate the main themes and points about management.
The material is presented in a way that makes the book an easy read. Theory and practice is very well linked. Although the cases and frameworks are from the USA and UK, the issues raised in this book should be relevant to a broader international audience.
