MANAGEMENT, 12th Edition, takes a functional, skills-based approach to the process of management with a focus on active planning, leading, organizing, and controlling. Griffin examines today's emerging management topics, including the impact of technology, importance of a green business environment, ethical challenges, and the need to adapt in changing times. Hundreds of well-researched contemporary examples, from Starbucks to the U.S. Military to The Hunger Games, vividly demonstrate the importance of strong management to any type of organization. The optional MindTap® incorporates a suite of new digital resources designed to facilitate and measure student success.
