Essentials of Management 11th Edition, by Andrew DuBrin

Essentials of Management 11th Edition, by Andrew DuBrin

$ 139.70 USD

Essentials of Management is written for newcomers to the field of management and for experienced managers seeking updated information and a review of the fundamentals. It is also written for the many professionals and technical people who work closely with managers and who take their turn at performing some management work. An example would be the member of a cross-functional team who is expected to have the perspective of a general manager.

Based on extensive research about curriculum needs, the design of Essentials of Management addresses itself to the needs of introductory management courses and supervision courses offered in educational settings. Previous editions of the text were used in the study of management in colleges and universities, as well as in career schools in such diverse programs as hospitality and tourism management, and nursing. The book can also be used as a basic resource for management courses that rely heavily on lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, and videos rather than an encyclopedia-like text.

-The late Jack Welch was the long-time chairman and CEO of GE and Suzy Welch is a former Harvard Business Review editor, they both wrote: - “In the past two years, we’ve visited 35 B-schools around the world and have been repeatedly surprised by how little classroom attention is paid to hiring, motivating, team building, and firing. Instead, B-schools seem far more invested in teaching brainiac-concepts—disruptive technologies, complexity modeling, and the like. Those may be useful, particularly if you join a consulting firm, but real managers need to know how to get the most out of people. (BusinessWeek, December 11, 2006, p. 112)
