The Manager’s Pocket Guide to Downsizing with Confidence provides a practical approach to planning and successful downsizing, without leaving a trail of devastation.  Learn to downsize the “right way”, how to inform employees, and how to come out ahead in an unpleasant situation.

Downsizing doesn't have to leave the exiting person devastated, the remaining people angry, the decision-makers stressed or the company open to litigation. With the Manager's Pocket guide to Downsizing with Confidence, you have a practical guide to planning and conducting a downsizing the right way so all the people involved come out ahead.

Get straightforward answers to the 12 most often asked questions about downsizing:


  •     Why should we worry?

  •     What are our real needs?

  •     How much planning time do we really need?

  •     How do we select who goes?

  •     What can we do to show that we've been fair?

  •     How--and what--do we tell the people who will exist?

  •     How do we tell the people who will remain?

  •     Do we do it all at once or in phases?

  •     What about the media?

  •     Is career transition assistance really necessary?

  •     What if we need some of these people in nine months?

  •     Now what?

If you're a leader involved in any way with a downsizing--whether 10 or 1,000 people are involved--this book will provide invaluable advice. The recommendations are based on the authors' 20 years of research and experience designing, reviewing plans for and coordinating large and small down sizing.
