The book is divided into nine sections covering topics such as individual differences, leadership, and social responsibility, ethics, and spirituality. Other topics include creativity and innovation, learning and knowledge management, organization design, sustainability, entrepreneurship, and managing communication, conflict, and stress.
Within the sections are chapters that cover important subjects often overlooked in other texts, including social and emotional intelligence, development of management thought, generational management, organizational learning, and family businesses. Each of the 24 chapters concludes with practical exercises and teaching notes, giving students the opportunity to apply what they are learning.
Featuring new contributors and a wide array of topics, Management: Theory, Research, and Practice is designed for use in undergraduate business management and administration courses. It is also an excellent text for courses in organizational psychology, communication, and public administration.
