The business world has changed beyond all recognition in recent years. New skills, insights, tools, technologies and best practice have emerged. At the same time, many of the foundations of good business have made important leaps forward. The business world has changed and deserves a single-source volume which brings all this progress together to make sense of it all.

The Capstone Encyclopaedia of Business represents the most up-to-date, authoritative and accessible guide to the modern business world available, providing a gateway to the state of the art in marketing, finance, strategy, leadership, people management and beyond. The Capstone Encyclopaedia of Business is organized alphabetically into over 1,000 entries covering the whole spectrum of business and management including: business terms - concepts - thinkers - practitioners - organizations - brands - companies...

Each entry provides a sharp, incisive overview of the subject and, crucially, points to how the ideas can be put into practice.

From "aby boomer"to "Charlie Babbage" and from "Off-balance-sheet-financing" to "Unemployment", The Capstone Encyclopaedia of Business makes sense of the new world of business, embracing the best of the new and the most robust of the old.
