Reel to Real Videos: Nothing helps students master management concepts like seeing them put into practice in the real world. New Management Workplace videos give an extensive look into the workings of interesting and successful companies like Original Penguin, Lonely Planet, PepsiCo, Organic Valley, and Peapod. In addition to these longer segments, each chapter has a movie clip called BizFlix that ties into the management concepts presented in the chapter. Clips are short, so you can view and review them easily and quickly.
Self-assessment: Previously contained in an isolated appendix, the chapter-ending cases and assignments now begin with a related assessment questionnaire to help students better understand their own managerial potential. Students will explore their tolerance for ambiguity, propensity to be competitive, perceptions about ethics, preference for flexibility or structure, style of conflict management, and much more.
Practice being a manager: Working through management issues before you even get to the workplace can be a beneficial way to practice being a manager. A new experiential exercise at the end of each chapter gives students a context in which to explore management issues and problems with other students. The guided exercises are supported by detailed teaching notes and role-playing instructions in the Instructor Manual.
Management facts and management trends: Short boxes provide quick examples and highlight issues being discussed in the business press. Students can see the currency of management and the importance of tracking trends.
Chapter outline system, learning objectives, and section reviews: Because of their busy schedules, very few students have the opportunity to read a chapter from beginning to end in one sitting. At the beginning of each chapter, you'll find a detailed chapter outline in which each major part in the chapter is broken out into numbered sections and subsections. The numbered information contained in the chapter outline is then repeated in the chapter as learning objectives and as numbered headings and subheadings throughout the chapter to help students remember precisely where they are in terms of the chapter outline. Instead of a big summary at the end of the chapter, students will find detailed reviews at the end of each section.
History of Management Chapter (Chapter 2) provides a comprehensive overview of the history of management--from the origins of management to discussions from major management theorists and how these theories compare to today's most recent management developments.
Develop Your Career Potential: Every chapter contains a brief exercise designed to develop skills and experiences that will help students on their career path. 'Develop Your Career Potential' provides an array of activities, like conducting a personal SWOT analysis, taking factory tours, developing creativity, and designing a self-motivation plan. By doing these exercises, students will build a foundation of skills and self-awareness to support them as they launch their management careers.
Doing the Right Thing: Ethical decision making is a critical managerial skill. To help develop ethical thinking, a new feature has been added called 'Doing the Right Thing.' A brief, real-life, ethical situation allows learners to evaluate and consider the 'right thing' to do and emphasizes the role of ethics without making it pedantic.
What Would You Do: All new 'What Would You Do?' cases put learners in a management position and ask them to resolve organizational situations. Resolutions to cases are available to the instructor, making them great discussion tools or assignments to verify student mastery of chapter concepts.
Management team decision: This proven end-of-chapter exercise requires learners to work in teams to solve management dilemmas. Throughout the book, learners can practice the group decision-making techniques discussed in Chapter 5 as they work to come to a team decision.
