Exploring Management 4e presents managerial concepts and theory in a straight-forward, interesting style with a strong emphasis on application. The discussion of theory is framed in a unique, student-centered, engaging, and concise way. Students will be able to think critically and make sound business decisions using managerial theory because concepts are explored and reinforced by many hands-on applications, exercises, cases, and the integration of technology. Through this approach, students successfully will be able to apply theory to practice. The author uses a conversational and interactive writing style that enables students to work at their own pace and master concepts in a more bite-size and fundamental approach.
