Overview

Revised to reflect the latest thinking and trends in managing organizations and people, Management and the Arts, Fourth Edition provides the student with the practical tools necessary to learn about managing an arts organization. The class-tested questions in each chapter help the student integrate the material and develop ideas as to how the situations and problems could have been handled. Case studies focus on the challenges facing managers and organizations every day, and "In The News" quotes give real-world examples of principles and theories. Developing career skills and options, graduate and postgraduate training opportunities, and professional organizations and conferences are highlighted.

In addition to using it in my classes, I have recommended it to arts managers as an excellent resource." — Wendi Hassan, Lecturer, Utah State University, and Education and Outreach Coordinator, Cache Valley Center for the Arts

"William Byrnes' book is obviously one of only a few books touching all aspects of arts management today." —Dirk Heinze, Arts Management Network, Germany
