An essential part of being a good manager is being able to think critically about management practice and the theories used to understand the world around us. This means that we do not just passively accept everything we see and hear, but rather actively ask questions that allow us to evaluate, categorise and find relationships amongst the complexity that we face every day. First we need to develop a basic understanding of the situation we are facing. Then we need to be able to interpret what we are seeing to understand its meaning. Then we are in a position to apply what we have learnt, to analyse how well it works, to add to it and finally to evaluate how successful it is at solving the issue under consideration. The activities are designed to help you to gain these skills. Together with the reference text Cornerstones of Management, Second Edition, they will help you to build good foundations for responsible management practice. This Student Activities Guide is divided into 14 chapters of the reference text. Each chapter starts with a brief overview of the content, a list of the learning objectives, guidance on how to build an overview concept map and the extension activities. Part A – The Development of Management Chapter 1 – The opportunities of management Chapter 2 – The evolution of management ideas Chapter 3 – Managing organisational environments Part B – Core Management Tasks Chapter 4 – Planning Chapter 5 – Organising structure & behaviours Chapter 6 – Leading Chapter 7 – Controlling the organisation Part C – Essential Management Behaviours Chapter 8 – Motivating Chapter 9 – Decision making Chapter 10 – Managerial communication Chapter 11 – Managing in groups Part D – Management for the Twenty-first Century Chapter 12 – Change & conflict in organisations Chapter 13 – International management Chapter 14 – Social responsibility and ethics in management
