About

Overview

Prepare your students, as managers, to confront today's challenges and opportunities that are more dynamic and complex than ever before with the interconnected approach found only in Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT - PRELIMINARY EDITION. Written by award-winning instructors and prominent Harvard management experts Ranjay Gulati, Anthony Mayo and Nitin Nohria, this unique text demonstrates how success within a constantly changing business environment requires a clear understanding of the interactive and dynamic nature of strategy, organizational design, and leadership. Students clearly see how today's managers need to harness technological advances, manage and lead a dispersed and diverse workforce, anticipate and react to constant competitive and geopolitical change and uncertainty, compete on a global scale, and operate in a socially responsible and accountable manner. MANAGEMENT - PRELIMINARY EDITION demonstrates the mutual interconnectivity among the three key facets of management: strategic positioning, organizational design, and individual leadership. The authors highlight both the manner in which strategy informs leadership and how leaders influence strategic positioning and, ultimately, performance. Your students effectively prepare for leadership roles and truly think like managers as they master and address the many integrated facets involved in answering the key question: How are leaders successfully managing competitive companies in the 21st century?

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"I believe this will be very helpful in broadening the perspective of current principles texts. Texts focused around the basic four functions always seemed to be missing a good perspective to help students understand how management fits in the bigger organizational environment."

— Suzanne Crampton, Grand Valley State University

"The book is organized around a strategy-organization-leadership paradigm rather than the traditional plan-organize-control-lead approach. The strategy emphasis leaped out (4 chapters vs. the typical textbook's single strategy chapter) and leadership was also clearly emphasized (less in chapter terms than in style). I really liked the overall approach. Other distinctive content was on networking (largely absent in other textbooks) and on performance management which had a more practical emphasis than the typical chapter or half chapter on control, which I liked again."

— Geoff Love, University of Illinois

"This is a book that someone needs to take a look at. It's readable and interesting and graphically well laid out. It covers all the material you'd want for a Principles of Management text and keeps the interest of the student. It must be considered in the next adoption."

— John Striebich, Monroe Community College

“Not only did the majority of this material help with course requirements, but it was also interesting to think about examples from my personal experiences to relate them to various topics discussed.”

— Nicole Misencik, University of North Dakota
