We recommend that you access a range of resources to broaden and inform your management studies. You do not have a set book as such and will find that there are several texts that give an emphasis to different aspects of management. Some focus on structure, other processes, others people in organsiations, some historical development, some theoretical explanations of how systems operate and how people behave.
