The fifth edition of this text has been thoroughly updated, continuing its strong emphasis on the importance of the Asian region to contemporary Australian and New Zealand organisations. Many Asian case examples are featured to illustrate key management concepts, and these provide a useful basis for comparison with management practices in Australia and New Zealand.

Numerous practical examples throughout the text highlight contemporary management issues, such as:

  • workplace diversity
  • sustainability
  • ethics/corporate social responsibility
  • the impact of technology
  • innovation in the workplace
  • globalisation
  • employee engagement
  • flexible working arrangements
  • work life balance
  • generational issues in the workplace
  • skills shortages in various industries
  • the importance of effective employee recruitment and training
  • organisational culture
  • workforce flexibility and casualisation
  • the 24/7 nature of contemporary communication technology, including social media
  • outsourcing.

Management, 5th Asia Pacific edition, has also retained the features that have made previous editions so popular with students and lecturers, including the Career Readiness Workbook activities at the end of the book, and the accompanying Interactive Study Guide with its vast array of multimedia resources.

A more concise version of this text is also available, Management: Foundations and Applications, 2nd Asia Pacific edition (ISBN 978 1 118 362 532).
