The 11th Edition maintains a focus on learning and applying management theories, while now also highlighting opportunities to develop the skills in high demand by today’s employers. Fundamentals of Management offers an easy-to-understand, straightforward, and realistic approach to what works for managers and what doesn’t -- with the ultimate goal to help students be successful in their careers.

 

Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily customize the table of contents, schedule readings and share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class -- motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. And, reading analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.
