Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For courses in Principles of Management or Introduction to Management. Robbins and Coulter's best-selling text demonstrates the real-world applications of management concepts and makes management come alive by bringing real managers and students together. As it successfully integrates the various functions of management, the book establishes a dialogue with managers from a variety of fields. Students and professors alike will enjoy the chapter-opening A Managers Dilemma vignettes (which Introduce students to real situations-related to chapter concepts-faced by real managers) and the chapter-ending Real Managers Respond to Opening Dilemma discussions that enable students to explore successful resolutions using concepts they learned in each chapter.
