Management: A Competency-Based Approach presents theory, relevant applications, and innovation. The authors continue to place emphasis on six managerial competencies-self-management, strategic action, planning and administration, global awareness, teamwork, and communication-and have carefully woven examples of each into every chapter. The authors chose these six competencies after surveying hundreds of managers in all types and sizes of businesses. The integrated, interactive Self-Assessment helps learners understand and develop their own management potential. This unique focus on competencies, combined with new theories and fresh examples, will engage the readers while applying the content. This text will set the standard for content that merges the concerns of managers, with the managerial competencies that foster excellence.
