Overview

Equip your students with the confidence and innovative skills they need to manage successfully in today's rapidly changing, turbulent business environment. The latest edition of Daft's market-leading MANAGEMENT helps you develop managers who look beyond traditional techniques and ideas to tap into a full breadth of innovative management skills. MANAGEMENT, 11E addresses emerging themes and the issues most important for meeting today's management demands and challenges. A blend of proven management techniques and new competencies demonstrate how to harness creativity and lead change, as students learn to put theory into practice. With the latest improvements in this edition, D.A.F.T. defines Management. D. Development of the latest managerial theories and innovative skills prepares students to adapt new technologies and inspire exceptional performances in managerial roles. A. Applications focus on contemporary ideas and relevance to students using a combination of cutting-edge exercises, memorable examples, new video cases, and topics not typically found in other management texts. F. Foundations in the best management practices combine fresh ideas with proven managerial research organized around the four functions of management. T. Technology in a leading support package delivers innovative solutions, from course management tools to new video cases and a premium website that helps ensure students reach their full management potential. MANAGEMENT 11E offers a unique new set of Manager Challenge Videos that are specifically designed to help develop your students' decision-making and thinking skills and answer the question "Why do I need to know this material?". These innovative, decision-making videos are also available in CengageNOW, making them an assignable and auto-gradable, out-of-class assignment. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • "REMEMBER THIS" FEATURE REINFORCES KEY CONCEPTS FOR STUDENT RECALL. These easily recognizable sections at the end of each major topic discussion throughout this edition distill key concepts into easy-to-read bulleted lists. Students find a one-stop-shop for quick concept review as this section highlights key terms and definitions as well as other key points important to the management concept.
  • FOCUS ON EMERGING THEMES AND INNOVATIVE EXAMPLES. This edition focuses on today's ever-changing business landscape and the recent and critical challenges facing managers working within this environment. A "Hot Topic" icon used throughout the text draws students' attention to some of the most up-the-date examples of management turbulence.
  • "ON THE JOB" VIDEO CASES PROVIDE BEHIND-THE-SCENES INSIGHTS INTO TODAY'S MANAGEMENT ISSUES. "On the Job" Video Cases, filmed specifically for Daft's MANAGEMENT, take viewers into the inner-workings of innovative organizations like Camp Bow Wow and Holden Outerwear to see management theories applied in business.
  • SELF-ASSESSMENTS ENCOURAGE PERSONAL MANAGERIAL DEVELOPMENT. Students immediately become engaged in chapter topics as brief "Opening Questionnaires" pose thought-provoking questions related to the chapter's content. In addition, "New Manager Self-Test" features within each chapter let students inventory their personal skills and check their understanding of how concepts apply, first-hand, to the manager's role.
  • END OF CHAPTER EXERCISES ALLOW STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE AND APPLY MANAGEMENT CONCEPTS THEY'VE LEARNED. Engaging end-of-chapter "Experiential Exercises," "Small Group Breakouts," and "Ethical Dilemmas" allow students to work individually or in teams to check their understanding of management principles as they experience common management situations and apply concepts to practical events. Questionnaires, scenarios, and activities provide opportunities for students to work individually or in teams.
  • "CASES FOR CRITICAL ANALYSIS" SHARPEN DIAGNOSTIC SKILLS FOR MANAGEMENT PROBLEM SOLVING. Brief, but substantive, cases at the end of each chapter provide opportunities to apply, analyze, and discuss management events within well-known organizations. Case situations are based on real management events; however, the identities of companies and managers have been disguised.

What's New

  • This edition includes a new bonus feature that looks at how companies are using smart management practices to reduce their impact on the planet. The Green Power boxed feature in every chapter highlights companies like Acciona using green real estate development practices, Subaru Indiana Automotive creating a zero-landfill manufacturing plant, SAP hiring a chief sustainability officer, and many more.
  • The new part-ending Integrative Cases also provide examples of environmentally friendly businesses while simultaneously providing students with noteworthy examples of good management skills. The cases feature both large and small businesses, including Honda's development of a natural gas-powered car, UPS's acquisition of a fleet of natural gas-powered trucks, and Clean Energy Fuels Corp.'s partnership with Navistar International to build a system for providing natural gas to fuel these "green" vehicles.
  • The Innovative Way sections have always provided outstanding examples of forward-thinking businesses and in the 11th edition the companies featured in this section have been updated to represent a broader range of large and small companies as well as international firms. Students will recognize familiar powerhouses like Toyota, JetBlue, Trader Joe's, and Gap, Inc., and will be introduced to an array of smaller international firms like Bremen Castings Inc., Godrej & Boyce, Semco, and Illumination Entertainment.
  • Manager's Shop Talk and Manager's Self-Test are two of students' favorite features appearing in every chapter throughout the book, and many of these have been updated to reflect the latest in management thinking. New Manager's Shop Talk box topics include goal setting, time management tips, creative problem solving, and ace interviewing techniques, while new Manager's Self-Tests explore students' aptitude for servant leadership, teach them how to delegate, and help them develop a personal mission statement.
  • MANAGEMENT 11e has also been thoroughly updated to provide the latest data and research findings on important management theories, including new technologies, globalization, social media, competitive dynamics, the functioning of multinational corporations, environmental uncertainty, adaptive organizations, sustainability, and many more.
  • In addition to the On the Job video series, MANAGEMENT 11E's DVD will also include a new set of 32 videos called the Manager Challenge series. Where the On the Job videos provide real-world, "do this" examples, the Manager Challenge series offers the flip side - the "don't do this" examples you've always wanted to show your students. Engaging and often very funny, the videos follow a set of struggling managers as they grapple with saving their fictitious donut company, Caffeine & Crullers.
  • InfoTrac® Student Collections are specialized databases expertly drawn from the Gale Academic One library. Each InfoTrac® Student Collection enhances the student learning experience in the specific course area related to the product. These specialized databases allow access to hundreds of scholarly and popular publications - all reliable sources - including journals, encyclopedias, and academic reports.
