Management: A Competency-Based Approach presents a balanced presentation of practical theory, relevant applications, and innovation that has set this text apart for nearly three decades. Within this new edition, the authors continue to emphasize the six key managerial competencies that are critical for success: communication, planning and administration, strategic action, self-management, global awareness, and teamwork. An interactive self-assessment has been integrated into the text's presentation to help learners understand and develop their own managerial potentials. This unique focus on managerial competencies combines with new theories and technology, fresh examples, and a new learning package to engage learners and contribute to their future success as members in any organization.
