This book is one of the best foundation establishers I've read. I am the Chief of Strategy for a major headquarters and currently teach for three universities in such subjects as Strategic Management, Business Policy and Strategy, Business Communications, Supply Chain Management, and Production Operations Management. The point of that statement is that this book that I use on the job, as well as, to some degree in each course I teach. It is well written, organized, and provides outstanding tables and figures to clearly articulate the concepts. This is a desk-reference that will get lot's of handling. A must read!

I learned more about human resource methodology in corporations

from each chapter.

Great summaries about corporations in the public eye.

Good case history and citing of heuristics

for running any good learning organization.

You learn the basics for Management 2000.

My professor used this book

for the University of Phoenix.

I really enjoyed learning about the various theories and paradigms for Modern Managers.

I found the case histories useful for analysis

and my papers. A book for the future CIO's, CEO's and HR Directors within us all.

This book is a good overview of management concepts. Bought it as a text book for a class but I'd buy it just as a personal reference book too. It's written in an understandable way so anyone can read it.
