9780230522213: Management and Organization: A Critical Text

This comprehensive textbook reveals the fascinating complexity of management studies and takes an engaging critical approach designed to help students challenge the preconceptions of the discipline. As managers, students will need to think independently in response to a broad range of scenarios. Here, key topics such as leadership, sustainability, and ethics are rethought by international experts and illustrated with organizational examples. The result is a challenging, yet accessible, analysis of contemporary work with the aim of improving management practice at its core. The new and second edition of this highly regarded textbook has been revised and updated throughout. 
Written by a highly experienced team of expert, this textbook is an essential resource for advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students of management and organizational behaviour.
