Book Description

We believe that this book provides an excellent starting point for students to gain a greater appreciation of the range of issues that managers contend with in the business world. Each individual chapter offers valuable insight into a particular topic, yet in the aggregate, the book serves as a compendium for many of the emerging business theories. It is our hope that educators will find this book a valued tool as they help their students embrace the theoretical and to develop the applied.
