Management integrates theory with practice with the objective of helping its readers in developing sound concepts and in applying them in their managerial career. This edition builds on its global focus by incorporating new examples from leading world organizations. It also looks at entrepreneurship in a big way to illustrate that individual and organizational entrepreneurship is a major managerial challenge and opportunity in the 21st century. Examples and cases of entrepreneurial innovation have been integrated throughout the text. As the earlier editions, this edition is also modeled on the systems approach to management and it looks beyond North America to bring in examples from the European Union, Asia (including India), and Latin America.
