Book Description

An established work, the second edition of Principles of Management offers the reader insight and analysis of the principles, processes and practice of management and leadership.

Covering private, public, and not-for-profit sectors, the book also takes an international approach, with a dedicated section on globalised processes and styles of management. The content is broken down into accessible sections to provide a clear and user-friendly book.

Written to meet the criteria of practicality and professionality, the book is relevant and useful with an emphasis on capability, usability, decision and resolution; "fix"; and an orientation towards implementation.
