Based on real-world practices and current thinking in the field, the tenth edition of STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT features an increased emphasis on the changing global economy and its role in strategic management. The high-quality case study program contains 31 cases covering small, medium, and large companies of varying backgrounds. All cases are available in the main student text or the core case text.

  • Closing Cases end each chapter and provide in-class discussion opportunities.
  • The end-of-text cases selected for this edition will appeal to students and professors alike, both because these cases are intrinsically interesting and because of the number of strategic management issues they illuminate.

Micromatic, 1 term (6 months) Printed Access Card  (ISBN-10: 0618641785 | ISBN-13: 9780618641789)

The Micromatic Business Simulation Game allows students to decide their company mission, goals, policies, and strategies. Student teams make their decisions on a quarter-by-quarter basis: determining price, sales and promotion budgets, operations decisions, and financing requirements. Each decision round requires students to make approximately 100 decisions. Students can play in teams or play alone; compete against other players, compete against the computer; use Micromatic for practice, tournaments, or for assessment. You can control any business simulation element you wish; leave the rest alone. Because of the number and type of decisions the student users must make, Micromatic is classified as a medium to complex business simulation game. This helps students understand how the functional areas of a business fit together without being bogged down in needless detail and provides students with an excellent capstone experience in decision-making.
