Foundations of Management - Text Only - 05 edition

Foundations of Management - Text Only (ISBN10: 0618332804; ISBN13: 9780618332809)
ISBN13: 978-0618332809
ISBN10: 0618332804

Summary: In response to demand for a brief introductory management textbook, noted author Robert Kreitner presents Foundations of Management. Fourteen concise chapters cover all the basic functions of management without sacrificing any core concepts, real-world cases and examples, or pedagogy. Due to its succinct coverage, this versatile text can be used in business and management courses at both the undergraduate- and graduate-level, as well as professional programs (includi
ng nursing, law, medicine, health-care administration, and public administration).

As always, Kreitner focuses on four overarching themes: change, skill development, diversity, and ethics. This short book features an even stronger emphasis on how-to, practical applications than his comprehensive management text. Kreitner's integrated, skills-based approach helps students to prepare for real-world contingencies. Hands-On Exercises (for individuals and teams) at the end of every chapter encourage students to develop increased self-awareness and build their managerial skills through a variety of assignments, including workplace surveys on organizational culture, quality-of-worklife, and management teamwork. Students also practice how to write good objectives, business plans, and behavioral interview questions; resolve interpersonal conflict; and handle difficult communication tasks.
