    Management, 6e focuses upon the most widely accepted management practices with an emphasis on strong research orientation and solid theoretical underpinnings. The book describes how men and women go about managing the people and activities of their organizations so that the goals of these organizations as well as their own personal goals can be achieved. The general theme of the book is 'dynamic engagement'—a broad term that captures the essence of change that confronts future managers, and current thoughts on what they will need to succeed.
