Product Description

From the Author

Innovative text for the European manager and student
Many readers seek a comprehensive and up to date book written from the perspective of European managers and students. My project was to cover theories in a clear and interesting way and show their application through many European and international case studies and examples. Almost all concern real events. This selection offers better value than the many well-illustrated north American texts on this subject.

The publisher's design allows ready access to key ideas through clear headings, figures and other exhibits.

Each chapter presents its aims at the outset, supporting them with by a check-up at the end. Users will also benefit from free access to multi-choice tests. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Readership

This text is written for those studying management for the first time. Written in an accessible style and illustrated with a wide variety of diagrams and examples, it encourages its audience to engage in a critical discussion of key themes and concepts of management.

The second edition

The text retains all the strengths of the first edition within a more concise and refined structure. The foundations of management, its origins and context, are examined in the light of contemporary themes such as globalisation, social responsibility, quality and enterprise.

Practical applications and examples taken from many sectors, nations and organisational sizes and types both illustrate and challenge taken-for-granted management assumptions and prescriptions.

Key features include:

  • many new cases and examples
  • a lively discussion on the impact of technology
  • extensive references to useful websites
  • an enhanced focus on planning and strategy, as well as organisational structure  and design
  • a strong pedagogical structure to aid and assess learning

Online support: a Companion Website offers further teaching and learning resources including:

  • Financial Times articles
  • self-assessment questions
  • web references
  • teaching notes and presentation slides

An excellent all round study of management, Naylor presents all the subject matter clearly and concisely, neatly accompanied with relevant (and up to date!) case studies which allow practical aplication of the theory within. As a student reading Business Studies Ba, we were prescribed this textbook as essential to complete the management aspect of the course, and it proves both understandable and easy-to-reference. Good value for money, even though it is not cheap, and a good accompaniment up to degree level management studies. I used this book as a reference text from a library before deciding that purchasing it would be essential.

This is an informative and relevant text, unlike many Management texts. It treats Management as a serious subject with serious real-world applications. It is comprehensive, factual, balanced, well written, and jargon-free. Those who are looking for entertainment should look elsewhere. Those who want to understand Management and its core processes, and want to gain an understanding of the perennial problems of Management, should read this book.

Only those studying theoretical management courses should buy and use this book, for if there is one thing to be sure of - it won't teach you much about the practicalities of being a manager. For those doing a course on the theories of management however, this book is a fantastic introduction to the people, the papers and the journals required to learn about management as a subject. With clearly defined sections, excellent up to date case studies and a variety of interesting topics discussed in a thought provoking way, this book won't tell you how to be a manager but it will help you pass that management course.

I am a manager who has never really had any management training, and I found this book really helpful in making sense of a lot of my experience to date. It also helped stimulate new ideas. I have never enjoyed text books but this is very approachable with plenty of real life, up to date case studies and examples, and a friendly format. While challenging, it avoided the abstract and felt very real - presumably this book is by someone who has not been an academic all their life!
