About this book


This book identifies the major issues that managers need to understand and respond to in the context of dramatic changes in the world economy. Developments in terms of international competition, economic deregulation, industrial restructuring and technological transformation are necessitating a rethinking of management and are posing major challenges to conventional ideas of leadership and managing strategic change.
This book presents students and practising managers with new, exciting and creative ways of thinking and learning about management. In the twenty-first century, managers will need to be proactive and flexible, sensitive to a wide range of issues and concerns, critical of their own and others' assumptions and behaviours, and above all, committed to continuous learning. This book will help them get there.
