Griffin/VanFleet, MANAGEMENT SKILLS: ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT, 1E, offers a comprehensive, real world approach to mastering the skills needed for a career in management. Because instructors often express the difficulty of creating an active learning environment, this text offers an active, not passive, way for students to learn management skills by challenging students to be self-reflective and asking them to complete numerous assessments, exercises, cases, and other activities. The authors also address another major concern instructors have about students being visual learners by providing a unique Visualize the Skill section not found in any other text. To better enable students to learn about management, chapters are organized in an easy-to-follow format that contains: Assessing Your Skills (pre-assessment scales); Learning About the Skills (concept portion of the text); Practicing Your Skills (exercises); Using Your Skills (case analysis); Extending Your Skills (group and individual exercises); Visualizing the Skills (video exercises); Your Skills Now (assessing skills after working through the chapter); and Interpretations (scoring keys and comparison data).

"I am particularly impressed with the "action research" orientation of this management skills book. There are very strong links between theory and practice throughout. The skills developed and advocated are hardly "busy work" and rather direct students toward a thorough simulation of many business scenarios they will likely encounter. The writing is extremely clear as the author utilizes user-friendly language without compromising depth or breadth. "
"This is a very interesting offering and seems like a competitive product in the Management Skills offerings."
"I think it's smartly written, with language accessible by our college students. The activities and assessments are numerous, giving the opportunity to customize the class. I think the material would be easy to use in an online or traditional format."
"I am impressed with your ability to integrate topics in a refreshing new manner. Your selection of self-assessments and exercises is a win-win for the student who gains a deeper understanding of the topic by completing an assessment or exercise about the topic. Your material is presented in a logical and sequential manner that will flow well for the student who is first learning about the areas of management. The exercises are enlightening as well as fun for the learner. Information is presented in a clear, concise manner."
"Sounds like you are on the right track, videos are something the students will relate to."
