Hva er en bedrift? gir en grundig innføring i bedrifters rolle i økonomien og i samfunnet, samt en oversikt over relevante teorier, metoder og modeller innenfor det bedriftsøkonomiske fagområdet. Etter å ha lest boken vil du lettere kunne se: hvordan de tverrfaglige sammenhengene kan anvendes i den økonomiske styringen av en bedrift, hvordan bedrifter, næringsliv og børs fungerer, og hvor viktig det er å ta utgangspunkt i kundens behov for å gjøre gode bedriftsøkonomiske vurderinger. Det blir stadig mer aktuelt å forstå bedriftsøkonomi, blant annet fordi bedriftene fremover vil være viktige endringsagenter for en mer bærekraftig fremtid. Boken er primært skrevet for studenter innen økonomifag, men siden den dekker bedriftsøkonomi i den videste betydning av begrepet, vil boken kunne ha interesse også for entreprenører og for andre som rett og slett ønsker seg en bedre forståelse av hvordan en bedrift fungerer på innsiden og hvordan den bør agere overfor sine omgivelser. Teksten er krydret med eksempler på «best practice» fra fremragende bedrifter i norsk næringsliv.

Brought to you by Penguin.In her latest book, five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr Brene Brown, writes, "e;If we want to find the way back to ourselves and each other, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories, and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection."e;In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and lays out an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances - a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heart-breaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.Over the past two decades, Brown's extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as Brown's singular skills as a researcher/storyteller, to lay out an invaluable, research-based framework that shows us that naming an experience doesn't give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning and choice.Brown shares, "e;I want this to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves. Even when we have no idea where we are."e;(c) Brene Brown 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021
