Now fully revised and updated with three brand new chapters on communicating, innovating and leading, this accessible and engaging textbook provides an introduction to management while empowering you to think ethically and sustainably in order to become a responsible manager. It also includes essential workplace skills for the 21st century and coverage of the various management occupations that you will go on to fill after your studies. Exclusive interviews with management pioneers and professionals help bring theories and concepts to life throughout the text as do the all new case studies which include Lego, Patagonia and Greta Thunberg. Worksheets and exercises additionally make for an active learning experience alongside multiple choice questions and a flip glossary for study revision in the supporting online resources.

It includes coverage of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are central to business education and practice today.
