The goal of Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT is to prepare students for leadership positions in 21st century companies by addressing the many facets involved in answering one key question: How are leaders successfully managing competitive companies in the 21st century? Today's constantly changing business environment presents challenges and opportunities that are more dynamic and complex than ever before, requiring a clear understanding of the interactive nature of strategy, organizational design, and leadership. MANAGEMENT, written by prominent Harvard management educators Ranjay Gulati, Anthony Mayo, and Nitin Nohria, is the only introductory management text on the market to address this challenge by taking an integrated and holistic approach to management, as opposed to a functional approach, making it more relevant to how today's organizations run. By demonstrating the interconnectivity among the three key pillars of management, students clearly see how decisions impact strategic choices, organizational alignment, and leadership approaches, ultimately leading to the overall performance of the company. MindTap for Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT, built from the ground up with this first edition, fosters the skill development needed for students to truly think like managers. This entirely unique approach will ultimately develop a sustainable and successful leadership style, better preparing students for subsequent higher level courses and making them more marketable upon graduation.

MANAGEMENT addresses the interconnectivity of three key pillars: Strategic Position, Organizational Design & Structure, and Individual Leadership, taking a more dynamic and integrated approach rather than a linear one.
A Self-Reflection starts each chapter, giving students a reality check that will help them place themselves in the context of the chapter.
The Leadership Development Journey is a comprehensive skills-based activity that allows students to develop who they are and who they will be as managers. This feature translates the theory into action−the "what" into "how."
A Different View helps define the gray areas within the business landscape, providing the students a glimpse of how the chapter concepts translate into a real-world context by addressing such diverse issues as reducing carbon footprint, leading a "Small Giant", leading in a globalized world, democratic workplaces, managing positive office politics, motivation in the 21st Century, and nonprofit networking.
Case in Point activities ask students to further explore case examples and provide research opportunities based on text content.
Aplia is an interactive, online learning solution that increases student effort and engagement. Aplia is designed to help students "Think Like Managers" by showing them how management is relevant to their own lives, helping them understand critical course concepts, and providing opportunities to apply management concepts to real world situations to improve leadership decision making skills.
MINDTAP FOR MANAGEMENT is a new personal learning experience that combines all your digital assets – readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments— into a singular learning path to improve student outcomes. MindTap offers complimentary web-apps known as MindApps. MindApps range from ReadSpeaker (which reads the text out-loud to students), to Kaltura (allowing you to insert your own video and audio into your curriculum) to ConnectYard (allowing you to create digital "yards" through social media – all without "friending" your students). Aplia is an app within MindTap as well. www.cengage.com/mindtap.
