First published in German, this book starts from the premise that managers’ understanding and theories of organizations determine how they decide to act. It therefore scrutinizes management’s basic tasks, and examines the most important concepts of management science, prompting questions for a company’s “health check”. The management tasks and scientific concepts are presented on the basis of an integrated framework which allows the reader to easily recognize their interdependencies and interlinkages.
