New to this edition
Content has been completely updated throughout, with a large proportion of new case and illustrative material added from newly industrialising countries such as India and China.
Case and illustrative examples have been fully updated using business examples that students will be aware of, helping aid the application of theory to practice.
New material has been included to cover the public sector; strategy formulation and the use of tools and techniques in Strategic Management.
Two brand new features have been added to the Online Resource Centre. The Tools and Techniques feature will link the book content to more quantitative material held on the ORC. The Key Work feature will provide students with more in-depth information online thus providing greater information for those students and courses that require it without adding to the books extent.
