Both management and non-management majors will find Management: Skills and Application (ISBN 9780073381503) a very helpful book even outside the classroom. Not only does it present how essential skills and manners can be used to become a successful manager, but also introduces students to important factors for communication, such as listening. Leslie Rue and Lloyd Byars have written this textbook in a straightforward way that does not overwhelm beginners. It covers the foundations of management and also deals with contemporary issues to better prepare students for their future careers. The main highlights of the book include foundations, contemporary issues, planning skills, organizing and staffing skills, directing skills, and controlling skills of management. Rue and Byars start off with an introduction to management, then continues to discuss the management of movement, decision-making skills, communication skills, ethics and social responsibility, and international business. The basics of planning, strategy and strategic managements, operations management and planning, organizing work, organization structure, and understanding work groups are also covered. There is a focus for staffing, developing employees and managers, plus topics that can be used for everyday living like motivation, leadership, and managing conflict, stress, change, and culture. This book covers controlling, appraising and rewarding performance, operations control, and management information systems. Management: Skills and Application strikes a good balance of information and real-life examples. The chapter previews and current corporate case studies help students sharpen their critical thinking skills. There are also plenty of exercises and questions to help students test how much they have learned. Already on its 7th edition, this textbook continues to be one of the best selling management books in the market. Several chapters have been revised to include topics such as diversity, staffing, strategic management, and international business.
