There is a strong movement today in management to encouragemanagement practices based on research evidence. In the firstvolume of this handbook, I asked experts in 39 areas of managementto identify a central principle that summarized and integrated thecore findings from their specialty area and then to explain thisprinciple and give real business examples of the principle inaction. I asked them to write in non-technical terms, e.g., withouta lot of statistics, and almost all did so.
The previous handbook proved to be quite popular, so I was askedto edit a second edition. This new edition has been expanded to 33topics, and there are some new authors for the previously includedtopics. The new edition also includes: updated case examples,updated references and practical exercises at the end of eachchapter. It also includes a preface on evidence-based management.The principles for the first edition were intended to be relativelytimeless, so it is no surprise that most of the principles are thesame (though some chapter titles include more than oneprinciple).
This book could serve as a textbook in advanced undergraduateand in MBA courses. It could also be of use to practicing managersand not just those in Human Resource departments. Every practicingmanager may not want to read the whole book, but I am willing toguarantee that every one will find at least one or more chaptersthat will be practically useful. In this time of economic crisis,the need for effective management practices is more acute thanever.
