Today’s ever-evolving workplace requires managers to hone new skills so they can make informed decisions, manage diverse teams, and lead change.
Management Today: Best Practices for the Modern Workplace cuts through the noise by introducing students to evidence-based management theories, models, and strategies. Experiential activities, critical thinking questions, and self-assessments provide students with hands-on opportunities to practice essential management skills. Authors Terri A. Scandura and Kim Gower provide best practices and explore timely issues like emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence, and virtual teams. Real-world cases explore good and bad examples of management, including the college admissions scandal, Theranos, and Walmart. In-depth coverage of big data, data analytics, and technology ensures students are ready to thrive in today's workplace.
