Management : Leading & Collaborating in the Competitive World is a highly effective book on teaching readers the basic concepts of management. Bateman and Snell discuss basic and traditional management functions, namely, planning, organization, leadership, and control, while modernizing different concepts like strategic value, employee or people mobilization, learning, and coping with the changing world. The book focuses on results and lays down 5 important kinds of performance that dictate whether an organization will succeed against, lose to, or be in the same level as the competition. These aspects include cost, speed, quality, service, and innovation. Success in these dimensions will ensure competitive edge against competition, as well as guarantee customer satisfaction. Bateman and Snell also emphasize the importance of teamwork and of people working to gain competitive advantage over other organizations. Management: Leading & Collaborating in the Competitive World (ISBN 9780078137242) discusses topics like the evolution of management, the internal and external environment of organizations, managerial decision making, as well as delivering strategic value. There are chapters on international management and entrepreneurship, as well as on organizational structure and how to manage human resource. The book explains how mobilizing people involves leadership, motivation, teamwork and communication, as well as how important managerial control is in managing change. This edition of the market-leading series provides useful inserts like The Caux Round Table Principles of Ethics, Managing Our Natural Environment, Information for Entrepreneurs, and Operations Management in the New Economy. It likewise features excellent illustrations and photos that help students better appreciate the concepts presented. Each chapter follows the authors' results-oriented framework.
