David Boddy with Steve Paton

  • What is management and how do ideas and theories of management apply to the real world?
  • How is the environment of management changing, and what are the impacts of recent trends?
  • What skills do managers require – and how can you develop them?

Management: An Introduction addresses these and many other questions by providing a comprehensive introduction to the themes and functions of management. Now in its fifth edition, this accessible and academically rigorous text brings the topic to life with a wide range of appealing and readily identifiable examples.

The valuable features of this book include:

  • Case studies on a broad global range of organisations as diverse as Nokia, The Eden Project, Facebook, Apple and many more.
  • Critical Reflection exercises throughout the text to encourage the application of personal experience and critical thinking.
  • Skills Development Activities to build practical and work-based competences.
  • Key Terms highlighted in the text and defined both at the margin and in a full Glossary.
