Students will acquire important knowledge about the complex and interrelated functions common to all organizations: planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling. The book introduces new thoughts and techniques alongside those that have stood the test of time and trial. Contemporary examples are given to illustrate discussions on such themes as strategic planning and total quality management.
