Managing the Publishing Process is a groundbreaking book designed to demonstrate how creativity and commerce can be managed in a facilitative environment that at once takes account of human abilities, needs, and frailties; organizational goals; and product excellence. It describes how to manage the publishing process to affirm societal and ethical values, produce an efficient organization that optimizes the requirements of employees, and achieve a publisher’s purpose and mission. Created as a foundation for teaching management to Simon Fraser University’s Master of Publishing candidates, this volume opens the management of publishing for view to a far wider audience.
