This book would be better if the diagrams were a little easier to read and the sections weren't as wordy. It is hard to focus and understand what they are trying to say.read more
If I could change one thing about this book it would be that it was more interesting. This book doesn't do a good job of keeping the readers attention.
This book was a good book, very thorough and educational. Learning was easy and the book was laid out well. It was perfect for my level of understanding and remembering information.read more
More use of term description at the end of each chapter
It would be better wtih condensed outlines and an index for key terms.read more
The information was up-to-date and current and relevant.
I learned a lot from this book, was very helpful in better understanding how the whole concept of management works.read more
There is not much that I would change about this book, it gives helpful graphics along with much needed descriptive information.
This book is one of the best learning utensils on the subject matter. You are able to stay up to date with current event examples for better understanding and gain all the details even the minor ones of managing a business from top to bottom.read more
The book stayed very consistent with explaining in great detail.
I cannot say any part was less helpful. The book was helpful in every aspectread more
In this ever more competitive environment there are five essential types of performance, on which the organization beats, equals, or loses to the competition which are cost, quality, speed, innovation and service. These five performance dimensions, when done well, deliver value to the customer and competitive advantage to you and your organization. Throughout the text Bateman & Snell remind students of these five dimensions and their impact on the "bottom line" with marginal icons contributing to the leadership and collaboration theme, which is the key to successful management.
To be honest, there wasn't really anything in this book that wasn't helpful. I learned a lot from this book and I feel much much better about my degree after using this book.read more
The class was called Principles of Management. The class taught us about being an effective manager, whether it was the manager of a small group of people, an entire department within a company, or even an entire company.
It was a decent read but I didn't help that significantly in helping me with my class.read more
It was on par with most books I've read in terms of organization, information, highlight material, and sentence fluidity and understanding.
