Manager’s Hot Seat Online! Now instructors can put students in the hot seat with access to an interactive program. Students are given an introduction to the situation, view a dossier of related management materials, and then watch 16 real managers apply their years of experience when confronting unscripted issues. As the scenario unfolds, questions about how the manager is handling the situation pop up, forcing the student to make decisions along with the manager. At the end of the scenario, students watch a post-interview with the manager, view how their responses matched up to the manager’s decisions, and then submit a report critiquing the manager’s choices while defending their own. Access to this online program is provided as part of the Premium Online Learning Access of this text. Access can also be purchased stand alone.
