Publisher's Summary

Robert's Rules of Order, Made Simple
For well over a century, from the hallowed halls of government to the executive boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies to the meeting halls of labor unions, Robert's Rules of Order has been the how-to authority on applying organizational intelligence to deliberative assemblies. When properly utilized, Robert's Rules ensure that the best ideas, not just the loudest, are always allowed to surface. They ensure that problems identified are not forgotten but resolved, and responsibilities are always clearly defined and never breached without consequence.
The problem is that understanding the intricacies of this watershed 19th-century para-parliamentary framework can be a tedious task. But now, thanks to ClydeBank Business, it doesn't have to be.
The Robert's Rules QuickStart Guide presents organizers, hosts, presidents, chairmen (and chairwomen), and any other would-be parliamentarians with a modernized, easy-to-understand, and essential breakdown of Robert's Rules of Order.
This is the perfect book for the business manager who's tired of wasting time during meetings or the club member who was recently elected president and is now charged with presiding over the club's meetings. With Robert's Rules QuickStart Guide, ClydeBank Business delivers time-tested wisdom in a way that's simplified and accessible for the everyday listener.
You'll learn about:

Drafting & approving bylaws
Creating & utilizing committees
The different types of motions & how to make them

And much, much more

This was a great explanation of Robert's Rules of Order, including it's history and origins. There were practical explanations of how it is used, why it is used, and how to start using it in your organization.
If you are planning to start a community organization, are planning a career in business management, are government employee, or are a part of a student organization at a university, this will definitely be of benefit to you.
Narration was pretty good as well.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
