With PRACTICAL MANAGEMENT SCIENCE, 6E, oriented fully to Excel 2016, you can learn to harness the full potential of spreadsheet modeling and take full advantage of its capabilities. For the purpose of ensuring that you construct a solid basis, this edition employs an active learning strategy and provides actual problems along with the appropriate amount of theory. The exercises provide participants with an opportunity to gain direct, hands-on experience with the approaches. The application of management science to your chosen profession, as well as how you may put these abilities to use on the job, are illustrated through examples and issues drawn from finance, marketing, and operations management, as well as other sectors of business. Instead of focusing on algebraic formulations and memorizing of specific models, the authors place an emphasis on modeling.
