Summary

Summary

How are leaders successfully managing competitive companies in the 21st Century? Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT, 1E, by award-winning instructors and prominent Harvard business experts, addresses the many integrated facets in answering this key question to help you effectively prepare for successful leadership now and in the future. As a manager, you will be confronted with challenges and opportunities that are more dynamic and complex than ever before. As a leader in any business role, you need to understand how to harness technological advances, manage and lead a dispersed and diverse workforce, anticipate and react to constant competitive and geopolitical change and uncertainty, compete on a global scale, and operate in a socially responsible and accountable manner. Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT, 1E demonstrates the mutual interconnectivity between three key facets of management: strategic positioning, organizational design, and individual leadership. The book presents management from a tangible, integrated, and current perspective, teaching you to visualize how strategy informs leadership and how leaders influence strategic positioning and, ultimately, manage performance.
