520    This concise introduction to the methodology of Business 
       Problem Solving (BPS) is an indispensable guide to the 
       design and execution of practical projects in real 
       organizational settings. The methodology is both result-
       oriented and theory-based, encouraging students to use the
       knowledge gained on their disciplinary courses, and 
       showing them how to do so in a fuzzy, ambiguous and 
       politically charged real life business context. The book 
       provides in-depth discussion of the various steps in the 
       process of business problem solving. Rather than 
       presenting the methodology as a recipe to be followed, the
       authors demonstrate how to adapt the approach to specific 
       situations and to be flexible in scheduling the work at 
       various steps in the process. It will be indispensable to 
       MBA students who are undertaking their own field work
