"The main strength is, in my opinion, in the way the author balances theory and practice -

always backing empirical findings with theoretical and academic references and always

translating concepts and theories into examples and cases."

Dr David Monciardini, Senior Lecturer in Management, University of Exeter

Enable critical thinking for enhanced employability outcomes

Management: Using Practice and Theory to Develop Skills, 8th Edition, by David Boddy is a market-leading text which today's students and tomorrow's managers need to read. For 20 years this text has introduced managers and students to the theory and practice of this broad discipline. A comprehensive introduction to the themes and functions of management, this book is an accessible and academically rigorous guide through the field.

Now into its 8th Edition, it continues to be the most up-to-date and reliable text of its kind. It enables your critical thinking by providing real-life case studies, and linking theory to six most critical employability skills which employers are looking for - transforming you into highly employable leader of tomorrow. With this edition, you also get access to the latest empirical evidence, case studies and employability tasks based on organisational management problems in the real world, making it easier for you even if you hold a diverse background and have alternate career intentions.

Key features:

  • Updated chapter case studies that link closely with theory, including Ryanair, BBC, Carlsberg, Google, Dyson, the Co-op, Crossrail, Facebook and Zara. There are two new ones - W.L Gore and Associates, and Amazon.

  • More coverage of entrepreneurship, and a new chapter on Managing Change

  • More examples of the links between management and sustainability

  • New empirical evidence (often in the 'Key ideas' feature) on key aspects of theory, including managers' preferred sources of information; how investors in high-tech start-ups decide who to back; how culture affects risk taking by entrepreneurs; and the link between bureaucracy and performance.

  • Additional material is on the Companion Website, with a clear link from the text at

This new edition builds on established pedagogic features, and adds two new themes which appear consistently in each chapter:

  • The idea that managers add value by performing tasks and processes within a context

  • The skills of clear thinking help students develop not only theoretical knowledge, but also their understanding of practice and of identifiable skill - which are likely to be valuable far into the future
