Amazon.com: The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement (9780884271789): Eliyahu M. Goldratt, Jeff Cox: Books

My husband was required to read this years ago for one of his jobs, and he still has it and recommends it to co-workers.

I'll bet that's the kind of thing you could find in magazines - I'm sure there have been articles written on which are the best.

Depending on what you mean by "management", you might find Michael Lewis to your liking.

My company has a library of books that we also provide to division managers and staff. Amongst the really good ones that the managers recommend are The 13 Fatal Errors Managers Make and How to Avoid Them, The New Art of Managing People and 101 Tough Conversations which is very useful for dealing with unpleasant situations at work without creating hostility and maintaining respect and dignity between management and staff.

Ken Blanchard is more of a motivational speaker but again, the managers swear by him, especially Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is good but very wordy. I personally liked 10-10-10 which is good for resolving issues or dilemmas both at work and home.
