Ivancevich's Human Resource Management, 11e takes a managerial orientation; that is it takes the position that HRM is relevant to managers in every unit, project, or team. Managers are constantly faced with HRM issues, problems, and decision-making and the text's primary goal is to show how each manager must be a human resource problem solver and diagnostician. This book pays attention to the application of HRM approaches in 'real' organizational settings and situations. Realism, understanding, and critical thinking were important in the revision. Students and faculty alike have identified readability and relevance as key strengths of the text. It provides a book that stimulates ideas and keeps all users up-to-date on HRM thinking and practice.

    Managing Projects covers project management practices of Caribbean organizations in general and Barbadian organizations in particular. The Caribbean public sector, for instance, currently plans and implements development programmes and projects to a value in excess of US$2 billion per year. Many of these projects/programmes are funded either through local borrowing or by international development agencies and focus on wide areas of national development, including agriculture, infrastructure, education, health, tourism, public sector reform, institutional strengthening and social sector development. However, there is increasing concern expressed by the both host governments and international development agencies about overall project management performance. Institutional strengthening, project / project management research, project management training and documenting the lessons learned may be some of the possible solutions. Although many projects have been successfully implemented over the years, there is little documentation to account for their success. Similarly, causes of project failure are also vague and unclear. This book on one hand explores causes of project failure and on the other hand proposes effective tools and techniques of project management.

    For courses in Management Science or Decision Modeling A solid foundation in quantitative methods and management science This popular text gives students a genuine foundation in business analytics, quantitative methods, and management science-and how to apply the concepts and techniques in the real world-through a strong emphasis on model building, computer applications, and examples. The authors' approach presents mathematical models, with all of the necessary assumptions, in clear, plain English, and then applies the ensuing solution procedures to example problems along with step-by-step, how-to instructions. In instances in which the mathematical computations are intricate, the details are presented in a manner that ensures flexibility, allowing instructors to omit these sections without interrupting the flow of the material. The use of computer software enables the instructor to focus on the managerial problem and spend less time on the details of the algorithms. Computer output is provided for many examples throughout the text.

    In 1965, a group of economists at Harvard University established the Project for Quantitative Research in Economic Development in the Center for International Affairs. Brought together by a common background of fieldwork in developing countries and a desire to apply modern techniques of quantitative analysis to the policy problems of these countries, they produced this volume, which represents that part of their research devoted to formulating operational ways of thinking about development problems.

    The seventeen essays are organized into four sections: General Planning Models, International Trade and External Resources, Sectoral Planning, and Empirical Bases for Development Programs. They raise some central questions: To what extent can capital and labor substitute for each other? Does development require fixed inputs of engineers and other specialists in each sector or are skills highly substitutable? Is the trade gap a structural phenomenon or merely evidence of an overvalued exchange rate? To what extent do consumers respond to changes in relative prices?
