About The Book
The book in its tenth edition has been thoroughly restructured and revised. All chapters of the present edition have been rewritten not only to incorporate the latest developments in management but also to make presentation of subject matter more lucid and crisp. Some chapters of the previous edition have been merged with other related chapters to put the focus properly. This has resulted in reduced number of chapters inspite of adding new chapter dealing with management practices of prominent countries and business leaders. Thus, the present edition Is ideally suited with MBA/PGDM, M.Com Students as well as management practitioners, particularly those who have not gone through formal management education.
