About this book


The impact of change on the business environment has dominated business thinking over the past decade and continues to do so. This book focuses on the impact of change on modern business by making it the central and integrating theme through a number of areas including, marketing, human resource management, economics and law. Each is explored in terms of its theoretical basis and the application of this theory to case studies. It is particularly suitable for undergraduate business courses and for students on MBA programmes.
