When you start out in your professional life you’re usually not sure where you’re going to end up.  Midway there you’re not exactly sure how you got there, but you want to advance further. Near the top of that professional ladder you still have a ways to go and yearn for a top spot.  “Ways and Means for Managing Up” is many things – a survival guide for some, a road map for others and a blueprint as well for those near the top of the pyramid.
