The everyday practices of good business are as much art as science. Our most difficult and meaningful work — negotiation and innovation, leadership and influence — doesn't fit easily into processes and systems. To succeed at these essentials requires we cultivate the interpretive and creative skills of mapmakers: adaptive to complex landscapes, adept at wayfinding through uncertainty, and alert to all the potential approaches to our final destinations.

Thus: The Cartography Series from FrontierPress. Short books from category experts that translate firsthand research into practical application. If traditional business books are guidebooks for armchair travelers, The Cartography Series is for those brave enough to take the trip. Small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, easily read on a 90-minute flight, and frequently returned to for jolts of insight and instruction. These are the maps to where you're going next.
