The state of the art


The world of business never stands still. Today s dominant force is tomorrow s sideshow. Fashions change and best practice evolves. For managers one certainty endures; the more you know the higher you go.

The third edition of the Financial Times Handbook of Management encapsulates this world of management thinking, reflecting what matters to managers in organizations in the first decade of the new century.   A compelling and comprehensive companion to management s big ideas, brilliant minds and better ways, the Handbook is packed with intelligent writing to bring management alive for the thinking executive.
