Essentials of Contemporary Management 6th edition by Jones and George is the concise edition of Contemporary Management. George and Jones are dedicated to the challenge of keeping “It Real” for all college students. The writers present management in a way that keeps it relevant to students even if they lack exposure to a “-life” management context. This is accomplished thru a diverse set of real world examples and the most popular feature of the textbook, “as a Person” (Chapter. 2). This chapter discusses managers as real people with their own weaknesses, personalities, strengths, problems and opportunities. This theme is carried thru-out the remaining chapters. Discussions take place regarding the importance of Management Competencies and the specific set of abilities, skills, and experiences that gives one manager the ability to perform at a higher level than another in a specific context. The themes of globalization, diversity, ethics, and information technology are integrated throughout the ebook.
