THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS: THE ESSENTIALS, 3e prepares students for a successful career in business by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and competencies they need to prepare for tomorrow's competitive workplace. Each chapter offers a thorough presentation of business principles and also highlights emerging business trends in fields such as management, leadership, production, marketing and finance. Trends include shifts in economic policies in Europe, the global marketplace, the boom in the service sector, managing workforce diversity, new technology, and more. The text also helps students envision themselves in a business career, revealing possibilities that exist when they select business as a major through new "Exploring Business Careers" opening vignettes and videos. Advanced learning tools such as online learning resources (CengageNOW) and the Integrated Learning System help build business competencies. To help students develop high-performance workplace skills, the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) recommends students develop five workplace competencies: using and allocating resources, working with others, acquiring and using information, understanding systems, and working with technology. The "Preparing for Tomorrow's Workplace" activities are designed to develop these workplace skills in students. SCANS competencies and workplace skill-building are key features included in the homework section of each chapter.

Review:

The title of this text, The Future of Business, sets the tone for my class. I encourage my students to look ahead, identify trends, and stay one step ahead of "current." This text has a very up-to-date look and a forward-looking perspective.

I chose this textbook because of its conceptual approach and dynamic nature. This is an immediate message that "business" is a constantly evolving and open-ended system, reliant upon human creativity, sensitivity, and ambition. The chapter summaries at the end of each chapter are so effective that I advise students to begin with these. The format and organization are the best I have seen.

Chapter 18, Using the Internet for Business Success, adds a nice touch. It is much more appropriate over the boxes and panels of Web address and the typical Surfing the Net exercises found in most introduction to business textbooks.

This text has clear writing that is at the student level of abstraction, good chapter organization, and great graphics that catch and keep young student interest.
