This unique version of Daft's best-selling principles of management text is geared for instructors who desire a briefer, condensed principles text, which emphasises small to medium sized local corporations. It covers management topics in enough depth to compete very favourably with so-called "Essentials" texts. The second edition includes increased coverage of exercises and experimental material, technology, and entrepreneurial and smaller business companies. Features: * Each chapter begins with a real-life problem faced by an organization manager. A Management Solution ends each chapter with an examination of how managers use chapter concepts to solve a problem. * Chapters from the market-leading Management 4/e have been consolidated, condensed and re-written based on input from numerous instructors at two-year institutions and quarter institutions. * All chapters emphasize entrepreneurial companies and small business, to help students relate to their own experiences. * Features an emphasis on line and mid-level managers' planning process and MIS needs. * An emphasis on supervisory decision-making is thoroughly integrated within the text. New to this edition: * Exceptional experiential material concludes each chapter. In addition to a case for critical analysis and an ethical dilemma, each chapter contains the Manager's Workbook--an activity for the individual, the Manager's Workshop--for group interaction, and 'Surf the Net--designed to stimulate creativity in using the Internet to practice, investigate, or solve management scenarios. * A strong technological focus throughout the text is exhibited in a new boxed item, "Technology for Today", which appears in each chapter, and in in-text examples describing companies' successful use of technology. * The "Learning Organization"--a company that embraces change, innovation, and leadership--is a central theme of the text. Each chapter features a "Leading the Management Revolution" box, to highlight companies that are succeeding amid chaos and thriving in an unpredictable economic environment. Introduced in Chapter 1 and detailed in Chapter 2, this corporate philosophy is taking hold in colleges and businesses around the world. * Reduced from 18 chapters to 17, paperbound, and less expensive, the text provides a concise and solid foundation to principles of management.
