Essentials of Contemporary Management 6th edition by Jones and George is the concise edition of Contemporary Management. Jones and George are dedicated to the challenge of keeping “It Real” for all students. The writers present management in a way that keeps it relevant to college students even if they lack exposure to a “-life” management context. This is accomplished thru a diverse set of real examples and the most popular feature of the text, “as a Person” (Chapter. 2). This chapter discusses managers as real people with their own personalities, weaknesses, strengths, opportunities, and problems. 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 ethics, globalization, diversity, and information technology are integrated throughout.
