Business Associations: Cases and Materials on Agency, Partnerships, and Corporations (Eighth Edition)

by Stephen M. Bainbridge William A. Klein J. Mark Ramseyer

With the prior edition of this concise, up-to-date casebook having been adopted at over 100 law schools, the eighth edition preserves the authors' tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of agency, partnership, and corporation law. It also continues to emphasize six basic editorial principles: Be lean but not mean, cases edited ruthlessly to produce a readable and concise result. Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planner's perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems. It's a casebook not a treatise. No long, stultifying textual passages. Provide the cases and let the individual teacher use them as he or she sees fit. Try to find cases that are fun to teach. Great facts or a clever analysis are always given first priority in case selection. Provide a teachers' manual that goes into great depth, with analysis of every case and, whenever applicable, offering the disparate views of each author. An exhaustive teachers' manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.

A Business Engagement

by Jessica Steele

The best of enemies! Carter Hamilton didn't approve of women in the boardroom--especially not redheads who gave as good as they got! Ashlyn Ainsworth certainly didn't want a directorship with Carter Hamilton's company. But, for her family's sake, she would have to grin and bear it. So it was hardly surprising that, from the first, Ashlyn and Carter just didn't get along. But in spite of warning her not to flirt with her male colleagues, Carter developed a grudging admiration of Ashlyn's PR skills. Ashlyn, for her part, couldn't deny Carter's skills with women. The man was unbearable to work with, too attractive to ignore. Oh, no! Falling in love with Carter hadn't been part of Ashlyn's agenda!

Business for the Glory of God: The Bible's Teaching on the Moral Goodness of Business

by Wayne Grudem

Can business activity in itself be morally good and pleasing to God? Sometimes business can seem so shady-manipulating the "bottom line," deceiving the consumer, or gaining promotions because of whom you know. But Wayne Grudem introduces a novel concept: business itself glorifies God when it is conducted in a way that imitates God's character and creation. He shows that all aspects of business, including ownership, profit, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, glorify God because they are reflective of God's nature. Though Grudem isn't naÏve about the easy ways these activities can be perverted and used as a means to sin, he knows that Christians can be about the business of business. This biblically based book is a thoughtful guide to imitating God during interactions with customers, coworkers, employees, and other businesses. See how your business, and your life in business, can be dedicated to God's glory. "A thoughtful review of the purpose and meaning of business and a fresh way to look at honoring and glorifying God in doing business. " -C. William Pollard Chairman Emeritus, The ServiceMaster Company"Helpful, easy-to-understand grounding for business leadership. " -James Fellowes CEO, Fellowes, Inc. "What remarkable insight!" -Stephen Happel, Ph. D. Professor of Economics, Arizona State University"What a great reminder that your business life can be a critical part of how you serve God and impact lives for eternity!" -Dave Browneformer CEO, LensCrafters; current CEO, Family Christian Stores

Business Information Systems: Design an App for That

by Raymond D. Frost Jacqueline C. Pike Lauren N. Kenyo Sarah E. Pels

Students in introductory Management Information Systems (MIS) courses often ask what a career in MIS looks like. Lacking a clear vision, they make their own assumptions. Often they assume the career involves programming with little human interaction. That MIS is a technical field could not be further from the truth. MIS job descriptions typically require candidates to be able to collaborate, communicate, analyze needs and gather requirements. They also list the need for excellent written and communication skills. In other words, MIS workers are constantly interacting with other people both inside and outside the organization. They are coming up with creative solutions to business problems. Business Information Systems by Frost, Pike, Kenyo and Pels is designed to help students get a feel for what a career in MIS would be like. The authors' students report that they learn more about information systems from their internships than from their IS courses. Consequently, they designed a book that looks very much like an internship--an introduction to the field followed by a substantial project. The authors begin Unit 1 by introducing the information systems landscape. The unit kicks off with a discussion of all the usual suspects: the information systems triangle, the systems development life cycle, transaction systems (ERP, SCM, CRM), collaboration systems, and business intelligence systems. Other aspects of the landscape such as usability, outsourcing, database concepts and so forth are introduced throughout a chapter in unit 2 where they fit in naturally with the flow of the project. Unit 2 is the substantial project which runs over a number of chapters. Students will plan, build, and develop a proposal for an iPhone application. They will develop a very realistic mockup. They also build a website to help market and support the app. Students are engaged because the project is fun and feels real. However, they are simultaneously learning business concepts and MIS skills. With Designing Information Systems, even as freshmen, you can give your students an experience that emulates MIS in operation. Business Information Systems: Design an App for That by Frost, Pike, Kenyo and Pels is a text that will help students learn Information Systems by doing Management Information Systems.
