Always start with basics

Most companies, established or just starting out, tend to follow a standard tried and tested method. Although this is correct, they tend to use a "one-size-fits-all" set up. This is where the basics come in, and is pointed out in this book.

The products in a shop in Scotland, may not be appropriate for a shop in London. The clothes, varieties in food will be different. Catering for the diverse cultures, feedback from the customers is quite important too. This book showed the insight into real management qualities, that sadly is lacking in quite a few organisations.

The book should be read with an open mind.
