This supplement covers a broad range of important skills - from decision-making, oral and written communications, interpersonal skills, and the ability to deal with diverse business problems to the ability to read and critically evaluate business press. This manual helps build an understanding of the relationship between accounting information and day-to-day business decisions. The supplement contains classroom-tested activities that are specifically designed to develop higher-order critical thinking skills. Students learn analytical thinking, unstructured problem solving, decision making, and how to draw reasonable inferences from observation.
