Передняя обложка
Elsevier, 25 нояб. 2010 г. - Всего страниц: 284
Eve on Top takes an in-depth look at the position of women in senior positions in the public sector using a case-study approach, based on ten ‘successful’ women and their background, upbringing, career progression, successes and failures, challenges and experiences. Each case study includes a ‘lessons learned’ response in the form of advice both to other women, and the organisations in which they work. Surrounding and supporting the case studies are short essays charting the main themes that emerge from the interview process, backed up by extensive literature reviews. The book also compares relevant public sectors in different parts of the world and concludes with several case studies.
  • Summarises the commonality and the diversity of the challenges and issues
  • Provides an analysis of the factors that help and hinder women in reaching the top positions
  • Provides solutions suggested by detailed analysis of real-life experiences
