Management Atlas book

Management Atlas is a new interesting book on knowledge visualization for management by Martin J. Eppler and Jeanne Mengis (in German). The idea of the book is to make management methods, strategies and tools more easily accessible to practitioners by representing them through visual metaphors. The 37 colourful metaphors are grouped together in three continents: methods for the individual, methods for the team, and those for the organization. The authors have chosen often unusual and fun metaphors to think of management problems and approaches: information overload as a dam lake, team development as a rollercoaster, risk management as a black swan, or the polarisation effect in teams as a swing. More information can be found on the book blog or editor website.
