How are leaders successfully managing competitive companies in the 21st century? Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT - PRELIMINARY EDITION, by award-winning instructors and prominent Harvard business experts, addresses the many integrated facets in answering this key question to help you effectively prepare for successful leadership now and in the future. As a manager you will be confronted with challenges and opportunities that are more dynamic and complex than ever before. As a leader in any business role, you need to understand how to harness technological advances, manage and lead a dispersed and diverse workforce, anticipate and react to constant competitive and geopolitical change and uncertainty, compete on a global scale, and operate in a socially responsible and accountable manner. Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT - PRELIMINARY EDITION demonstrates the mutual interconnectivity between three key facets of management: strategic positioning, organizational design, and individual leadership. The book presents management from a tangible, integrated, and current perspective, teaching you to visualize how strategy informs leadership and how leaders influence strategic positioning and, ultimately, manage performance.

"I believe this will be very helpful in broadening the perspective of current principles texts. Texts focused around the basic four functions always seemed to be missing a good perspective to help students understand how management fits in the bigger organizational environment."
"The book is organized around a strategy-organization-leadership paradigm rather than the traditional plan-organize-control-lead approach. The strategy emphasis leaped out (4 chapters vs. the typical textbook's single strategy chapter) and leadership was also clearly emphasized (less in chapter terms than in style). I really liked the overall approach. Other distinctive content was on networking (largely absent in other textbooks) and on performance management which had a more practical emphasis than the typical chapter or half chapter on control, which I liked again."
"This is a book that someone needs to take a look at. It's readable and interesting and graphically well laid out. It covers all the material you'd want for a Principles of Management text and keeps the interest of the student. It must be considered in the next adoption."
"Not only did the majority of this material help with course requirements, but it was also interesting to think about examples from my personal experiences to relate them to various topics discussed."
