Hands-On Exercises (one per chapter) are included to help the reader personalize and expand upon key concepts. These exercises encourage thoughtful interaction over passive reading.
Brief chapter opening cases provide a real-world context for the topics at hand and timely and relevant applications of the theory presented in each chapter. Interpretations for each case may be found at the text website.
One or two Skills and Best Practices boxes per chapter are designed to sharpen skills by either recommending how to apply a concept, theory or model or, by giving a corporate example of what is being discussed. Students will benefit from hands-on experience and direct skill-building opportunity.
