All key management topics and concepts are covered and identified throughout the chapter by the learning objectives. A variety of applications apply the concepts to ther real world to reinforce learning and ask students to think critically.

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.
