-         the roles and functions that individuals and groups perform inside an organisation

-         how innovation, governance, and other key issues affect an organisation’s performance and success

Packed with features to make learning outcomes obvious, help you check your understanding, and encourage you to think critically, the third edition of this book also contains 24 new and engaging case studies including:

-         long-standing global brands such as Microsoft, Coca-Cola and Cadbury
