Managing in the Information Age
Prentice places management within its social, economic, and political context; showing how management attitudes and activities are closely related to the environment in which they are practiced. Overarching issues such as the importance of diversity in the workplace and the need for ethical approaches to managing are given due attention, while both theory and practice are brought together by discussing the leadership, motivation, communication, and marketing of the organization. Key organization management issues include: innovation and planning, organizing work, decision making, staffing, performance evaluation, program management and evaluation, financial planning and management, planning and managing physical facilities, and knowledge management.
