Management: Current Practices and New Directions
Unlike any other text available today, Dyck/Neubert's MANAGEMENT: CURRENT PRACTICES AND NEW DIRECTIONS blends the strengths of two management perspectives. Now you can choose a truly unique management text that establishes a strong traditional management foundation while addressing the issues that today's millennial students will face in their future careers. The authors' solid mainstream approach in each chapter addresses the traditional four main functions of management. The authors then take management a step further by closely examining multistream topics that other books only mention, such as social justice and concern for the natural environment. The authors build upon the multistream understanding that effective management involves balancing a broad set of criteria, ranging from community enhancement and ecological sustainability to meaningful work and financial viability. Throughout the text, captivating experiences and stories from actual managers and leading organizations demonstrate managers making a difference. With a practical, hands-on focus, the text equips students with the knowledge and theoretical tools to further their own decision-making abilities. Dyck/Neubert's unique blend of traditional management strengths and the best of multistream management theories and practices promises to educate, inspire, and empower your students now and throughout their management futures.
