Editorial Reviews

?Amey introduces key ideas and concepts he believes need to be understood by those entering the study of management. Rather than following the functional approach used in most introductory texts. Amey opts for a conceptual presentation. The book consists of a series of essays addressing topics such as systems, objectives, information, organizational structure, types of interdependence, value and cost, risk and uncertainty, control and performance, motivation, measurements, and causation and explanation. The book was written primarily for beginning MBA students and secondarily for students seeking various business-related professional degrees that require courses in management. At the MBA level the book is an appropriate introduction to management, especially for students from disciplines remote to business.?-Choice
