Summary

New Features

  • Focus Company Web Sites. Six of the focus companies come with accompanying online focus sites. These interactive websites, tied directly to the in-chapter "You're the Decision-Maker" exercises, simulate an intranet environment making students privileged insiders into the real business world. Written by co-author Frank Selto, these eye-catching decision modules contain spreadsheet data, strategic company information, and value chain analysis. These make for excellent activities, group projects, and add to applying the chapter discussion.
  • Build Your Own Spreadsheet. One or more of the exercises or problems in each chapter includes an option for students to build a spreadsheet to solve the problem's requirements. Students are also asked to use the spreadsheet to determine the effect on the solutions if various parameters in the problem are changed.
  • The material in Chapter 21 has been condensed and incorporated into other chapters, primarily Chapters 18 and 20. The new edition has 20 chapters instead of 21.
  • Chapter 14 includes an introduction to real option value (ROV) analysis, not available in any competing text.
  • Ethics Many of the chapters highlight ethical issues that arise in the context of cost management.
