The ninth edition of this well known text continues to integrate theory with practice. As in
the previous editions, the systems model serves as the framework and integrates five
constituent management functions – Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Leading, and
Controlling. This new edition comes with a greater emphasis on leadership while
retaining the international view of managing. The learner would find examples from top
companies and renowned individuals which would not only help them deliberate upon
but explore new vistas in management.
