Designed to perfectly meet the needs of a one semester course, Management Foundations: A Pacific Rim Focus 3e has been totally revised and updated to ensure it remains the best learning resource in the market. It's more comprehensive yet more accessible and innovative than ever.
Now available with Connect Plus, academics and students alike will benefit from online access to an eBook, end of chapter questions and assignments, a testbank, automatic grading and Connect Interactives (a unique video based learning tool). We've also added a great suite of new local videos that bring the principles of management to life.
The text follows a traditional approach to management in content and topic emphasis and this edition is informed by extensive market feedback. As a result Management Foundations now contains even more relevant and significant regional case studies, new examples and current impacts (such as sustainability and the Global Financial Crisis) and greater focus on SME's.

In response to the increasing number of international students studying management, we have also created a unique Mandarin glossary and an international phonetic pronunciation guide for key terms-making it easier for all students to get to grips with the subject.

With Management Foundations 3e you access a winning combination-trusted content that is authored by dedicated, successful and experienced educators combined with outstanding pedagogy and Connect Plus technology.
