Skills Development for Tomorrow’s managers
In its Ninth Edition, Developing Management Skills has become the standard in hands-on management learning. Designed for students of all skill levels and learning styles, the text allows students to apply knowledge to real-world situations, connect concepts to their own lives, and experience management theory in a tactile and engaging way.
Updated for tomorrow’s managers, this text features contemporary examples, new skill assessments and cases, updated research, and tangible, relevant goals for students to work toward. Focusing on ten essential skills for success in management, Developing Management Skills focuses on what managers actually “do,” transforming management concepts into practical, actionable techniques.
Students will gain hands-on practice applying management concepts with MyManagementLab. They’ll engage in real business situations with simulations, build their management skills by writing and talking about different management scenarios, have access to a videos and current events to help put concepts into perspective, and more.
