This set of Management Skills modules is the modular version of Mastering Management Skills that was published last year. This allows instructors the flexibility to select specific skills modules to bundle with an existing text or to create a skills book to meet their specifications. With its skills-based approach, this text focuses on the social learning perspective, applying critical managerial tools and techniques throughout. In each module, the learner is presented with a short discussion of relevant theory and concepts and then actively participates in the application of these concepts through experiential exercises, self-assessment tools, and case studies. Throughout all the modules are examples and interviews with practitioners, emphasizing to the learner the importance of the topic at hand.
