FOUNDATIONS OF MANAGEMENT 3e has been written to address the needs of introductory management subjects that require an accessible and concise introduction.
This streamlined text of 15 chapters covers the principal concepts of management to provide students with a solid foundation for understanding key issues. Management is a dynamic discipline and a textbook in this area must constantly undergo significant changes to prepare students to manage modern, ever-changing organisations within our transforming world.
This new third edition builds on the success of its previous editions by exploring the new challenges that face managers today. New topics and features have been added to better reflect the field of management and to capture the excitement of this dynamic discipline. The text highlights six integrative topics throughout. These topics are managing for sustainability, globalisation, innovation, customer service, diversity and ethics. In particular, we believe the inclusion of managing for sustainability is an important recognition of the challenge that must be met by today’s managers and organisations as they start to tackle the issue of global warming. This best-selling text is not a book that just describes management theories.
In addition it includes many practical examples and cases, which illustrate the theories in action. As it successfully integrates the various functions of management, the book establishes a dialogue with managers from a variety of fields. This third edition continues to make management concepts meaningful and to excite readers about the possibilities of careers in management.
