Summary

SUPERVISION: CONCEPTS & PRACTICES OF MANAGEMENT, 10e presents a study of traditional management principles, theories and practices along with skill-building applications that prepare students to understand the role and responsibilities of a supervisor. The new edition expands coverage of hot topics like crisis management, exporting of America's jobs, protected class issues and ethics; and introduces new discussions of appreciative inquiry, quality issues in the marketplace, and improved communication. The new, highly-effective cases incorporate role-playing components to maximize in-class participation and retention.

Benefits:
