Management, 2nd Edition by Neck, Houghton, Murray, & Lattimer helps students think critically, make better decisions, and act in an ethical way that contributes to long-term organizational success. The authors of Management 2nd Edition believe that young managers can contribute to building a more sustainable future by making decisions that are more acutely informed by their ability to see, think, apply, analyze, design, integrate, and evaluate systems and patterns of behavior. This text provides the tools to help instructors teach and students learn the how and why behind management decisions. Choose Neck, Management and build your students’ critical thinking skills necessary for sound decision-making that later translates into effective business management.
