9780074714454: Management: A Pacific Rim Focus, Enhanced Edition

Management: A Pacific Rim Focus continues to equip students with the skills they need to become informed, effective managers by offering the most diverse and original case studies of any management text, and rigorously exploring the impact of e-commerce and workplace diversity within a genuine Asia-Pacific context.

This new Multimedia Edition extends the book's critical approach through 5-10 new critical thinking questions and 50 new, original and relevant industry cases, made available on an accompanying Multimedia CD and linked to the main text as part of an integrated learning package. The new questions further extend students by making them think critically and strategically about management theory and practice; the new cases address more strongly issues of gender and the management practices of global organisations. Also available on the Multimedia CD is video material that contextualises the chapter topics and is supplemented by video case notes to help students learn in a true multimedia environment.
