people and utilizing their services, developing their skills motivating them to
enhance their performance ensuring that they remain committed to the organisation.This

effectiveness to counter the threats of extinction as a result titanic market
My intention behind authoring this book is to give a documented form to my observations and experience as far as the theory and practice of management is concerned.
This book has been planned in twenty seven chapters covering all salient areas of Management - from planning. organizing, directing, controlling, coordinating, delegation, SMP, International Management, CSR, Performance Management, Decision Making, Stress Management, Management Development and succession planning, Entrepreneurial Management and compensation management. There were requests from many corners to highlight chapters like Global Perspective of Management and the burning issues of Talent Management. Both the Chapters have been added in this book.
I will be extremely grateful to the readers if they suggest relevant points for its further improvement.
