When first introduced to the market in 1998, Contemporary Management, by Jones and George made a huge splash with its innovative voice, content, pedagogy, design, and package. The cutting-edge 3rd Edition continues to redefine what principles of management texts should look, sound, and feel like. Authors Gareth Jones and Jennifer George are dedicated to the challenge of "Making It Real" for students. As a team, they are uniquely qualified to write about both the strategic imperative for managers and organizational challenges that real managers face! Their combined research and text-writing experience is matched by no author team today.
Contemporary Management is a comprehensive text that surveys the theoretical underpinnings of modern management thought and research and through a variety of real world examples from small, medium, and large companies shows the reader how those ideas are used by practicing managers. Of course, the organization of this text follows the mainstream functional approach of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling; but the content is flexible and encourages instructors to use the organization they are most comfortable with. The themes of diversity, ethics, and information technology have been greatly expanded in the 3rd Edition through in-text examples, photographs, "unboxed" stories, and the end-of-chapter material - all areas of importance that truly serve to bring to life the workplace realities that today's student will encounter in the course of a career.

The business world has changed dramatically in the three years since we last revised our book. There are increasing pressures on managers at all levels to integrate new information technology into all aspects of an organization's operations to improve efficiency and customer responsiveness. The increasing diversity of the workforce has made it imperative for managers to understand how and why people differ so that they can effectively manage diversity. The continuing need to innovate and to improve the quality of goods and services to allow an organization to compete effectively, especially on a global level, have continued to confront managers. The tasks that managers must perform effectively have become more complex and challenging than ever before.
Encouraged by the favorable reception and high level of support that greeted the first two editions of Contemporary Management we set out to revise and develop the third edition of our book in significant ways based on the reactions and suggestions of both users and reviewers. Both users and reviewers were very supportive of our attempts to integrate contemporary management theories and approaches into the analysis of management and organizations. Our goal has been to distill new and classic theorizing and research into a contemporary framework that is compatible with the traditional focus on management as planning, leading, organizing, and controlling, but which transcends this traditional approach.
Users and reviewers report that students appreciate and enjoy our presentation of management, a presentation which makes its relevance obvious even to those who lack exposure to "a real-life" management context. Students like both the book's content and the way we relate management theory to real life examples to drive home the message that management matters both because it determines how well organizations perform, and because managers and organizations affect the lives of people who work inside them and people outside the organization, such as customers and shareholders.
The contemporary nature of our approach can be seen most clearly by examining our table of contents, and by perusing our treatment of management issues, especially with reference to the kinds of issues and organizations we discuss in our opening cases and many insights throughout the book. In keeping with this tradition, we've added many new and updated topics and issues throughout all of the chapters in the book. Some highlights include: fall of the dot-coms and problems and challenges encountered by dot-coms, moods and emotions, emotional intelligence, how managers create culture, attraction-selection-attrition framework, ethical organizational cultures, different kinds of diversity--age, gender, race and ethnicity, religion, capabilities/disabilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation--business case for diversity, schemas and gender schemas, gender discrimination, global supply chain management and its importance in light of increasing globalization, how IT is making the world smaller, designing global IT systems, B2bnetworks and IT, knowledge management and IT, control systems and IT, Six Sigma quality improvement programs, 360-degree appraisals, cafeteria-style benefits, need for work-life balance, overpayment and underpayment inequity, equity and the dot- com bust, employee stock options, intellectual stimulation, development consideration, transformation leadership, gender and leadership, emotional intelligence and leadership, how virtual storefronts compare to traditional brick-and-mortar storefronts.
As you will see, we have some chapters that are not contained in any other management book. Our new Chapter 3, for example, takes the former chapter on "The Manager as a Person," (which discussed managers as real people with their own personalities, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and problems) and now combines it with an in-depth discussion of ethics and culture. This unique chapter now shows students how managers shape all aspects of the way an organization works, and students will grasp that managers are people like themselves and subject to the same kinds of forces that govern their choices and actions. Another unique chapter for a management book, Chapter 16, "Organizational Confiict, Politics, and Change," discusses how managers can successfully manage organizational politics, conflict, negotiation, and change. Students will also appreciate the challenges managers face and how, as future managers, they can successfully meet them. The chapter gives students a hands-on look at managing crucial organizational processes. Similarly, our book has always had the greatest coverage of communication and information technology (IT) of any book in the market, and the practical, hands on significance of understanding IT is obvious today like never before. We show in every chapter in rich detail how IT is impacting the jobs or managers and employees alike.
Emphasis on Applied Management
Our contemporary approach also is illustrated by the way we have chosen to organize and discuss contemporary management issues. We have gone to great lengths to bring the manager back into the subject matter of management. That is, we have written our chapters from the perspective of current or future managers to illustrate, in a hands-on way, the problems and opportunities they face and how they can effectively meet them. For example, in Chapter 3 we provide an integrated treatment of personality, ethics, and culture; in Chapter 4 a hands on account of diversity, and sexual harassment that clearly explains their significance to practicing managers. In Chapter 7, on planning and strategy we provide an integrated treatment of highlighting the choices managers face as they go about performing the planning role. We emphasize important issues managers face and how management theory, research, and practice can help them and their organizations be effective. This chapter is one of our book's most popular chapters with both instructors and students.
This applied approach can also be clearly seen in the last three chapters of the book in which we cover the topics of managing information systems, technology, and operations management, topics which have tended to be difficult to teach to new management students in an interesting and novel way. Our chapters provide a student-friendly, behavioral approach to understanding the management processes entailed in information systems, operations management, and innovation and entrepreneurship. As our reviewers noted, while most books' treatment of these issues is dry and quantitative, ours comes alive with its focus on how managers can manage the people and processes necessary to give an organization a competitive advantage. In fact, the management of information technology to create and sustain a competitive advantage has always been a major theme of our book, as discussed earlier. In the new edition, our communications chapter, information systems chapter, abundant IT examples, and internet exercises continue to provide a state-of-the-art account of new developments in computer information systems that students will understand and enjoy.
Another factor of interest to instructors concerns the way we have designed the grouping of chapters to allow instructors to teach the chapter material in the order that best suits their needs. For example, the more micro-oriented instructor can follow Chapters 1 through 4 with 12 through 16 and then do the more macro chapters. The more macro-oriented professor can follow Chapters 1 and 2 with 5 through 10, jump to 17, 18, 19, and then do the micro Chapters 2 and 3 and 11-16. Our sequencing of parts and chapters gives the instructor considerable freedom to design the course that best suits him or her. Instructors are not tied to the planning, organizing, leading, controlling framework, even though our presentation remains consistent with this approach.
Rich and Relevant Examples
An important feature of our book is the way we use real-world examples and stories about managers and companies to drive home the applied lessons to students. Our reviewers were unanimous in their praise of the sheer range and depth of the rich, interesting examples we use to illustrate the chapter material and make it come alive. Moreover, unlike other books, our boxes are seamlessly integrated in the text: they are an integral part of the learning experience, and not tacked on and unrelated to the text itself. This is central to our pedagogical approach.
Each chapter now opens with "A Manager's Challenge" which poses a chapter-related challenge and then discusses how managers in one or more organizations responded to that challenge. "A Manager's Challenge" helps demonstrate the uncertainty surrounding the management process.
Additional in-depth examples appear in boxes throughout each chapter. "Management Insights" illustrate the topics of the chapter, while the "Ethics in Action," "Managing Globally," and "Focus on Diversity" and "Information Technology Byte" boxes examine the chapter topics from each of these perspectives.
These are not "boxes" in the traditional sense, meaning they're not disembodied from the chapter narrative. These thematic applications are fully integrated into the reading. Students will no longer be forced to decide whether to read "boxed" material. It is also important to make these features interesting to students so that they engage students while illustrating the chapter material.
This edition also continues the feature "Tips for New Managers" which distills the lessons that students can take from the chapter and use to develop their management skills.
Experiential Learning Features
We have given considerable time and attention to developing state-of-the-art experiential end-of-chapter learning exercises that we hope will also drive home the meaning of management to students. Grouped together at the end of each chapter in the section called Management in Action, they include:
Integrated Learning System
Great care was used in the creation of the supplemental materials to accompany Contemporary Management. Whether you are a seasoned faculty or a newly minted instructor, you'll find our support materials to be the most thorough and thoughtful ever created!
Prepared by Anne Cowden of California State University-Sacramento, each chapter contains an overview, learning objectives, key terms, list of resources, notes for opening case, lecture outline, three lecture enhancers (at least one per chapter is new to this edition), notes for small group breakout exercises and world wide web exercises, notes for management cases, and video teaching notes.
Test Bank and Computerized Test Bank
The test bank has been thoroughly reviewed, revised and improved in response to customer feedback by a new author, Eileen Hogan, of Kutztown University. There are approximately 100 questions per chapter, including true-false, multiple-choice, and essay, each tagged with level of difficulty (corresponding to Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives), correct answer, and page references to the text.
Two valuable sets of videos are now available with this text: a fresh line-up of case videos featuring programs from NBC and PBS news reports and a new series of management skills videos called the "Manager's Hot Seat." The case videos provide further coverage of topics, examples, and cases in each chapter that are identified with a distinctive video icon appearing in the book margins. New video titles include "Donna Dubinsky, Creator of Palm Pilot," "Dot Gone: Dot-Com Companies Failing," "MTV/Viacom China Manager Discusses the Changing Culture and Attitude in China," and "Daniel Goleman Discusses His Book, Emotional Intelligence." The Manager's Hot Seat videos show how real managers respond to simulated real-world scenarios that require the use of key management skills, including "Managing Personality Clashes/Conflict Resolution," "Self-Management: Disclosing Personal Information," "Using Active Listening to Resolve Issues," and "Managing Diversity: The Interview Process."

Finding a way to integrate and present the rapidly growing literature on contemporary management and make it interesting and meaningful for students is not an easy task. In writing and revising the several drafts of Contemporary Management, we have been fortunate to have had the assistance of several people who have contributed greatly to the book's final form. First, we are grateful to Andy Winston, our sponsoring editor, for his ongoing support and commitment to our project, and for always finding ways to provide the resources that we needed to continually improve and refine our book. Second, we are grateful to Laura Spell our developmental editor, for so ably coordinating the book's progress and to her and Ellen Cleary, our marketing manager, for providing us with concise and timely feedback and information from professors and reviewers that have allowed us to shape the book to the needs of its intended market. We also thank Artemio Ortiz for executing an awe-inspiring design, Mary Conzachi for coordinating the production process, and Alexander Ruiz (Rice University) for his research assistance, and Elaine Morris (Rice University) and Patsy Hartmangruber (Texas A&M) for providing excellent word-processing and graphic support. We are also grateful to the many colleagues and reviewers who provided us with useful and detailed feedback, perceptive comments and valuable suggestions for improving the manuscript.
Producing any competitive work is a challenge. Producing a truly market-driven textbook requires tremendous effort beyond simply obtaining reviews on a draft manuscript. Our goal was simple with the development of Contemporary Management: to be the most customer-driven principles of management text and supplement package ever published! With the goal to exceed the expectations of both faculty and students, we executed one of the most aggressive product development plans ever undertaken in textbook publishing. Hundreds of faculty members have taken part in developmental activities ranging from regional focus groups to manuscript and supplement reviews and surveys. Consequently, we're confident in assuring you and your students, our customers, that every aspect of our text and support package reflects your advice and needs. As you review it we're confident that over and over your reaction will be "they listened!"
