About the book

Jones/George, Essentials of Contemporary Management is the concise edition of Contemporary Management. Jones and George are dedicated to the challenge of “Making It Real” for students. The authors present management in a way that keeps it relevant to students even if they lack exposure to a “real-life” management context. This is accomplished thru a diverse set of examples and the most popular feature of the text, “Manager as a Person” (Ch. 2). This chapter discusses managers as real people with their own personalities, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and problems. This theme is carried thru-out the remaining chapters. Discussions take place regarding the importance of Management Competencies--the specific set of skills, abilities, and experiences that gives one manager the ability to perform at a higher level than another in a specific context. The themes of diversity, ethics, globalization, and information technology are integrated throughout.
