Using a three-pronged approach of concepts, applications, and skill development, this text provides students with a solid foundation of management concepts and real skills they can use in the workplace. Through a variety of thought-provoking applications, Lussier challenges students to think critically and apply concepts to their own experiences. Proven skill-building exercises, behavioral models, self-assessments, and group exercises throughout the text help students realize their own managerial potential. The 15-chapter format is comprehensive enough for the one term course, but is also flexible enough to allow for additional readings, activities, or discussions.

Review:

The book provides good balance between developing a strong theoretical background on management and the development of transferable skills for future managers. Its logically organized. The self-assessments and skill building exercises are features that enhance it dynamism. The book supports student-centered learning. It also lends itself to collaborative teaching methods. In two words I would describe this book as Flexible and Dynamic.

Comprehensive course coverage; easy for students to read & understand; excellent video cases.
