Introduction to Management

Colin Combe

  • Designed to help boost students' academic grades and employability through the provision of integrated Skillsets, which link practical skills with topics in the textbook. These innovative features also clearly demonstrate the relevance of the theoretical material to the real world.
  • A truly international range of case studies broadens students' horizons and encourages them to look beyond the standard set of UK and American examples. Emerging economies are given more attention with detailed analysis of case studies from the Middle East, Latin America and Africa.
  • The texbook provides management insights from real-life practitioners, from both the public and private sectors. These focus on the skills that students need to develop to be successful managers in a rapidily changing business environment.
  • Critical reflection boxes encourage students to develop a critical mindset and consider the academic debates behind the theories.
  • A range of online resources to give students more insight into management. Detailed podcast interviews with practitioners expand upon the features in the textbook, and a library of video links offers a variety of contemporary and stimulating material to engage students.
  • More compact and manageable than existing titles, but still covering all of the necessary topics for both one and two semester modules.
