Today's managers are confronted with more dynamic challenges and opportunities than every before—through the need to harness technological advances, lead a dispersed and diverse workforce, anticipate and react to constant competitive and geopolitical change on a global scale, and operate in a socially responsible and accountable manner. In response to the changing business landscape, this textbook proposes a shift from traditional Principles of Management textbooks in that it takes a more holistic and integrated approach. It demonstrates the interconnectivity between strategic positioning, organizational design, and individual leadership. Take a closer look, you could be part of advocating a paradigm shift for tomorrow's managers.
