Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Islamic Values and Management Practices explains how a set of management principles based on Islamic values, has been developed over time by the author and her colleagues. This Islamic management model stresses that effectiveness is an outcome of operating efficiently, but at the same time unifying the organization's objectives with those of its employees and wider society, and ensuring that at the strategic level the long view is always maintained.

At a time when many practitioners and business educators are seeking new management approaches, this revealing case study sheds light on the evolution of a contemporary theory of management for the Muslim world.
