  • ALL-NEW "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" CHAPTER-OPENING CASES PLACE STUDENTS IN MANAGEMENT ROLES. Each chapter opens with an all-new engaging case that explores actual management problems within a well-known company, such as Netflix, DuPont, Delta Airlines, and Louis Vuitton. Questions following the case challenge students to determine what they would do if they were the managers in each situation.
