Overview

Bateman and Snell’s Management: Leading & Collaborating in a Competitive World is a text with a fully modernized functional approach. This text is maintaining the four traditional functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, while modernizing and re-visioning the concepts as delivering strategic value, building a dynamic organization, mobilizing people, and learning and changing.

Bateman/Snell’ results-oriented approach is a unique hallmark of this textbook. In this ever more competitive environment there are five essential types of performance, on which the organization beats, equals, or loses to the competition which are cost, quality, speed, innovation and new to this eighth edition, service. These five performance dimensions, when done well, deliver value to the customer and competitive advantage to you and your organization. Throughout the text Bateman & Snell remind students of these five dimensions and their impact on the “bottom line” with marginal icons contributing to the leadership and collaboration theme, which is the key to successful management. People working with one another, rather than against, is essential to competitive advantage.

I rented this textbook through Barnes and Noble dot com....it took 9 days to get to me, so the usually ships in 24 hours most certainly did not apply here. I specifically and thoroughly researched my options and most definitely am in need of the internet access code that comes with this book. The specific description from the slug of a place that supplied this rental to Barnes and Noble said that it did include this code. Barnes and Nobles description even includes the code. But when the book arrived...no code. I just spoke with Pamela in customer service and she told me I would have to return what I have, re-enter a new order--but she could not guarantee that the new order would even have a code either. The class started last week and I can not be without a book or without the code for that period of time. I am extremely discouraged and disappointed with the service and lack of accountability for this product. Oh yeah, and I am a long time member of Barnes and Noble. Very, very sad. What a disgrace.
