Discover a management text unlike any other available today! Dyck/Neubert's MANAGEMENT: CURRENT PRACTICES AND NEW DIRECTIONS blends the strengths of two management perspectives to present the best of mainstream management fundamentals with a multistream perspective that focuses on issues today's millennial generation will face in their future careers. The authors' solid mainstream approach in each chapter addresses the traditional four main functions of management before closely examining progressive topics that other books only mention, such as social justice and concern for the natural environment. The authors build upon the multistream understanding that effective management balances a broad set of criteria, ranging from community enhancement and ecological sustainability to meaningful work and financial viability. Throughout the book, captivating stories from actual managers and leading organizations demonstrate managers making a difference. With a practical, hands-on focus, the book equips readers with the knowledge and theoretical tools to further their own decision-making abilities. Dyck/Neubert's unique blend of traditional management strengths and the best of multistream management theories and practices promises to educate, inspire, and empower readers now and throughout their management futures.

Review:

"I will adopt it at its earliest availability--it brings my classroom and students into the 21st century and will be a delight to teach."

"The major strengths of this text is the Mainstream and Multistream discussions; no other text does it this way, to my knowledge. The traditional materials, theories, studies, etc. covered in most traditional management texts are included here . . . "

"The Dyck/Neubert text is far and away the best management textbook that I have ever come across in my 12 years of a business professor."
