9780273631033: Management: Concepts & Practices

This book takes as its starting point the premise that the raison d'etre of management in the 1990s is the management of change. It looks at the many areas of management including leadership, organisational culture and human resource management, and considers each of these functions in turn to examine how they have and how they must develop. The text takes an integrative approach to the subject of management and brings together these separate areas to show how they are all necessary to the management of change and to establishing a sense of direction for a company. With contributions from leading authorities in their fields and with such comprehensive coverage of a wide range of topics, this text is a must for all students of management.
