Reviews

"Amey introduces key ideas and concepts he believes need to be understood by those entering the study of management. Rather than following the functional approach used in most introductory texts. Amey opts for a conceptual presentation. The book consists of a series of essays addressing topics such as systems, objectives, information, organizational structure, types of interdependence, value and cost, risk and uncertainty, control and performance, motivation, measurements, and causation and explanation. The book was written primarily for beginning MBA students and secondarily for students seeking various business-related professional degrees that require courses in management. At the MBA level the book is an appropriate introduction to management, especially for students from disciplines remote to business."-Choice "Unlike most introductions to management, this book emphasizes key managerial concepts, in both verbally descriptive and mathematical terms, instead of the various functions that managers perform: planning, organizing, staffing, decision making, etc. Thus, in its introduction to key managerial ideas, this book attempts to provide a short, one-volume methodology of management. Chapters are devoted to systems, types of interdependence, objectives, choices under risk and uncertainty, information, organization and structure, value and cost, control and performance, motivation, measurement, and causation. Each chapter is accompanied by a mathematical appendix that formalizes and develops previously introduced concepts."-Management Literature ?Unlike most introductions to management, this book emphasizes key managerial concepts, in both verbally descriptive and mathematical terms, instead of the various functions that managers perform: planning, organizing, staffing, decision making, etc. Thus, in its introduction to key managerial ideas, this book attempts to provide a short, one-volume methodology of management.
