In writing Principles of Management, vol. 2.0, Carpenter, Bauer, Erdogan, and Short all had simple aims:
- To teach management principles to tomorrow’s business leaders by weaving three threads through every chapter: strategy, entrepreneurship, and leadership
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Principles of Management
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
This text frames performance using the notion of the triple bottom-line: financial, social, and environmental performance. It is important for all students to understand the interdependence of these three facets of organizational performance.
There is a growing trend that students see themselves as entrepreneurs and active change agents, not just as managers. By starting fresh with an entrepreneurial/change management orientation, this text provides an exciting perspective on the art of management.
- ACTIVE LEADERSHIP:
Starting with the opening chapter, this text shows students how leaders and leadership are essential to personal and organizational effectiveness.
The Flat World Knowledge publishing model allows instructors to adapt the textbook to the exact needs of their specific class and student body.

This edition of Principles of Management is dedicated to Dr. Mason Carpenter (1961-2011). Mason’s love for and commitment to teaching and research are sorely missed. His original vision for this book lives on in this edition as do many of his words and examples. Working with Mason was a joy and we are lucky to have had the chance to know him and call him a friend, coauthor, and colleague. Thank you, Mason.
The Instructor’s Manual guides you through the main concepts of each chapter and important elements such as learning objectives, key terms, and key takeaways. Can include answers to chapter exercises, group activity suggestions, and discussion questions.
