This unique management skills text provides you with a new toolbox from which to teach students the difficult and challenging application of managerial theories and concepts. Daft and Marcic's action-first approach turns the traditional learning model on its end. Instead of starting with concepts and moving to application, this text starts with application, an introductory problem or challenge that encourages students to first empty out their ideas so they are ready to understand new ideas and acquire new skills. Each chapter provides a menu of teaching resources for student challenges, engagement, applications, and learning, ample opportunity to fill students up with the spot-on management skills they'll need to be successful managers. This new learning philosophy leads students through a seven-step learning process: 1. Manager Challenge, 2. Initial Response, 3. Discover Yourself, 4. Discover Knowledge, 5. Action Learning Exercises, 6. Test Your Mettle, and 7. Personal Skills Log. Shorter, highly-focused chapters take students through each of these seven steps, allowing them to capture the essence and critical points for each topic. The mass of research material has been condensed and focused into discrete learning packages (chapters) designed specifically for student engagement. Organized around a new learning philosophy, with new technology and a coherent learning package for students to acquire management skills through an active "first do, then learn" approach, Daft and Marcic have created a truly unique teaching and learning experience with BUILDING MANAGEMENT SKILLS, International Edition.
