Author(s): Robbins S et al
Designed for any introductory course in Management, in undergraduate or postgraduate studies, the third edition of Robbins Management has been carefully revised to provide students with the best possible understanding of what it means to be a manager. The basic four-function approach has been retained, as have the content and features that have proven successful in previous editions of this best-selling text. And, importantly, new topics and features that better reflect the field of management and capture its excitement in the twenty-first century have been added.
