View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This brand new textbook covers all of the core topics found on Introduction to Management modules, and the author's clear, accessible writing style guides students through the world of management. The book also goes a step further to encourage students to develop a critical mindset and think about academic debates around the subject.

Innovative Skillsets linked to each substantive chapter integrate practical skills with the topics. Skills such as time management, critical analysis, referencing, personal development planning and reviewing literature are included. Clear, step-by-step guidance helps students develop each skill, understand why it is important, and see how the topic is relevant to practical applications in the real world of business.

A truly international range of case studies broadens students' horizons and encourages them to look beyond the standard examples from the UK and America. Emerging markets are becoming ever more important in the rapidly changing business environment, a fact reflected by the inclusion of case studies from the Middle East, Latin America and Africa.

An Online Resource Centre accompanies the textbook, and includes:

For students:
Multiple choice questions
Suggested answers for the exercises and discussion points.
Flashcard glossary.
Web links.

For registered adopters:
Test Bank of exercises.
Library of video links, with teaching notes and cross-references to the textbook.
Fully integrated and customisable PowerPoint slides.

Review:

The writing of this textbook is overwhelmingly exceptional. I cannot stress enough how accessibly, straightforwardly, and concisely it presents often quite complicated material. It balances exactly right the need to make these subjects both digestible and rich for young students. (Dr Peter Bloom, University of Swansea)

The skillsets provide an excellent breakdown of highly relevant and important topics such as presentation and time-management skills which are crucial for preparing university students for future years of study. I would have found this book a great help during my first year of university. (Adam Horton, student at Brunel University)

The combination of current and classic material provides students with the basis on which to understand the foundations of management, and also some of the current applications within our complex commercial context. The accessible and clear writing style doesn't condescend but equally does not overcomplicate. (Alistair Norman, Lecturer, University of Leeds)

Pitched at the right level for first year students, this will give a firm foundation for any further studies as well as being a source of reference to the students in years to come. (Mike Davies, Teaching Fellow, University of Reading)

The book is clear and well written, and all the chapters have a good mix of critical material. I think the international cases are brilliant - much clearer and more understandable than those offered by competitors. (Vivienne Byers, Lecturer, Dublin Institute of Technology)

The authors have succeeded in building compelling cases on a solid theoretical foundation. It is not easy to come up with something really new when discussing management science. (Martijn van Velzen, Assistant Professor, University of Twente, Netherlands)
