The world is in a constant state of flux, and this influences the operations of every business and organisation. This book deals with these changes by covering the functions of a business or an organisation and then addressing the contemporary issues that affect them. These issues include globalisation, corporate entrepreneurship and citizenship, credit, diversity and HIV/AIDS. Every student of business and business manager needs to understand the importance of these issues and their influence on the operations of a business. The book also highlights the interdependency between the various business functions. This interdependency is very important for a business or organisation to operate as a whole.
