In other words, the paper includes what is of priority interest to those who want to practice a professional management, generating economic performance.
b) The volume is built entirely in a systemic vision. It is probably one of the few elaborate management of such proportions that treats the management of the organization exclusively in a systemic vision. The first chapter incorporates methodologies for designing or redesigning the management system of the organization, made in a holistic perspective. Next, in the same perspective, successive design methodologies for the major managerial components are presented, strategy, methodological-managerial subsystem, decisional subsystem, informational subsystem, organizational structural subsystem, human resources management subsystem ending with a chapter dedicated to the effectiveness and efficiency of management. managerial and organizational.
c) The paper has as prevalent dimension the applicability or the organizational pragmatism. There are three elements that give it this essential characteristic: the managerial methodologies presented in each chapter, conceived in an operational vision, from the point of view of the manager and the specialist called to implement them; applied methods and techniques structured, not a few accompanied by model applications for their use; the numerous case studies that incorporate representative managerial studies for the most important elements treated in the paper. When printing the applicative dimension, a major contribution has a long and intensive experience of management consultants of the two authors. The fact that, currently, they offer management consultations to companies being among the few Romanian specialists who redesign company management systems is reflected in the way they perceive and treat managerial problems pronounced pragmatically, from the point of view specific to company management.
d) The approach of the managerial elements is carried out through the prism of the current needs and requirements of the commercial companies that make up the Romanian economy. Unlike almost all the management papers published by local specialists who deal with the problems of Romanian companies, ignoring their cultural and economic specificity and Romania's integration into the European Union, this volume starts and constantly considers these realities with a decisive impact on the operationalization. and management performance. The current requirements arising from Romania's integration into the European Union, from the globalization of the world economy and from the transition to the knowledge-based economy, on the exercise of organizational management are expressly highlighted.
e) The international transfer of managerial know-how in Romanian companies is given special attention. There are two main ways to do this. First of all, the paper takes over and integrates the methodological contributions of many world-renowned management specialists: Peter Drucker, Michael Porter, Henry Mintzberg, Herbert Simon, Douglas McGregor, Octave Gélénier, Howard Stevenson, Longenecker, Charles Pringle, Richard Farmer , John Child, Philippe De Woot, Igor Ansoff sa

This offers the possibility for those who study the volume to know quickly and with little effort what is foreshadowed more valuable in management worldwide. These characteristics of the paper certainly give it a great utility for those interested in the management of the organization, managers, consultants, teachers and specialists in business management, students in the profiles: economic, technical, legal and psychosociological, who study management. They also represent the main recipients and beneficiaries of the work.
