9780071108539: Management :  Leading & Collaborating in the Competitive World: Leading and Collaborating in the Competitive World

Bateman and Snell have consistently discussed and explained the traditional, functional approach to management through planning (delivering strategic value), organizing (building a dynamic organization), leading (mobilizing people), and controlling (learning and changing). Management: Leading & Collaborating in a Competitive World retains its series of "firsts": first to have a chapter on diversity, first to devote a section to the natural environment, and first to relate a "bricks and clicks" theme to explain the challenges of managing in a New Economy. This new edition is no exception with an emphasis on leadership and collaboration as a means to success. To survive competition and thrive in today’s world, you must perform in ways that give you an edge over your competitors. Four essential performance dimensions - cost, quality, speed, and innovation - when well done, deliver value to the customer and competitive advantage to students and their employers. In the new Seventh Edition of Management, Bateman and Snell go a step further to discuss the advantages of leadership and collaboration as two essential means to these four "bottom line" practices that successful managers and companies must deliver to their customers. This leadership and collaboration theme is the key to successful management. People working with one another, rather than against, is essential to competitive advantage. By reinforcing these new business practices in context with the functional approaches, the authors deliver a unique theme among all principles of management texts - how to manage, lead, and collaborate in ways that deliver results.

From the Publisher:

A new economy is emerging of E-commerce and the Internet, but the fundamentals are still the same. This theme will be evident in the 5th edition.
The four classical functions (planning, organizing, leading, and controlling) are retained but also reconceptualized for the new era as delivering strategic value (planning), building a dynamic organization (organizing), mobilizing people (leading), and learning and changing (controlling).
Chapter 1 is new and discusses the Internet, globalization, knowledge management, and collaboration across boundaries, while retaining coverage of the management functions and competitive themes. It concludes with a section titled "You and Your Career", personalizing the chapter and setting a personal tone for the book.
A student CD-ROM is now included with every, new student copy of the text. The CD contains self-assessment exercises, flash technology, as well as PowerPoint.
Five integrating cases one at the end of each part reinforce principles learned in previous chapters and bring theories to life with well-known companies.
"From the Pages of Business Week": highlight recent Business Week articles in each chapter.
Opening Quotes: provide a thought-provoking preview of chapter material. The quotes are from people like Peter Drucker (on management), Jack Welch (on strategy), Henry David Thoreau (on ethics), Julius Caesar (on leadership), and Charles Kettering (on change and the future).
Learning Objectives: open each chapter and identify what students will learn by reading and studying the chapter.
Setting the Stage: the chapter opening vignette describes an actual organizational situation and provides a rich introductory example and practical application of the chapter topic.
Experiential Exercises, which appear in each chapter, encourage students to apply the theories they have just learned.
Boxed features: describe current examples and controversial issues and are found throughout each chapter.
