Management: A Practical Introduction, 10th edition, empowers students to develop their career readiness. Developed to help students read and learn management with a purpose, it takes a student centered approach.

It continues to engage students through practical and relevant application of theory, current examples, imaginative writing, and resources that work. The revision expands its strategic career readiness theme, has overhauled the TRM with new detailed lesson plans to assist with course preparation for both in-person and online classes, integrates new coverage on creating shared value and sustainable development, and increases the examples to be inclusive and representative of our diverse body of today's managers and employees.
