About this book


This book provides basic management knowledge in a clearly structured way. Fundamental aspects of management are described, on the basis of which a model of the enterprise is outlined. This allows readers to find their way around easily, to reflect, then to set new approaches in context and examine them in a critical light. The practical examples, the interpretation questions, and the short case studies at the end of the chapters facilitate the transition from theory to practice.
