   schema:reviewBody ""Effective Security Management, Fourth Edition retains the excellent qualities that made the original and earlier editions a standard of the profession: a readable, comprehensive guide to the organization, staffing, and operation of the security function. Sennewald, a recognized leader in the field, applies modern management strategies to the concerns and problems facing every security manager. The focus of this book is not on abstract theories but rather on practical methods, written in plain language, that can be used in managing an effective security department." "The Fourth Edition includes an entirely new chapter devoted to security statistics. This chapter provides the reader with an insightful understanding of the proper use of statistical information as a management tool in a broad range of activities from budget justification to crime analysis in the security environment." "Also, back by popular demand, are the author's "Jackass Management Traits," 32 humorous, tongue-in-cheek portrayals in cartoon format, of negative management traits that point out graphically the very real problems that can undermine the effectiveness of unsuspecting supervisors and managers."--Jacket." ;
