Dramatic changes in both the external and internal environment of organisations in South Africa since the beginning of the twenty-first century have resulted in employees increasingly expecting to be part of the decision-making process. This change, combined with developments in technology, means that human resource (HR) managers are now faced with new and important challenges. In this situation, increasing pressure is being exerted on HR managers in South Africa to make a more significant contribution to the success of their organisations - how can organisations in South Africa deal with the complexity, speed and magnitude of these changes and still create and achieve a competitive advantage?

It is nearly two decades since public schools in South Africa began to admit learners from all cultural and racial backgrounds, and this diversity has resulted in a need for schools to evolve with the changing circumstances as well as to maintain excellence. Teachers are faced daily with the challenge of teaching and managing learners of unfamiliar cultures, languages and backgrounds. Multicultural education introduces various models of multicultural education and provides practical, low-cost classroom strategies which teachers can implement effectively in culturally diverse schools.
Multicultural education explores concepts of diversity in society from various theoretical perspectives and discusses the implications of differences and similarities among South African learners.

It is compulsory even for some degrees not strictly confined to legal practice, such as certain police and related qualifications. However, the law of evidence is not considered an easy subject, especially not for persons who have never been inside a court of law.
In this work, academics with practical experience of the criminal justice system have selected a number of decided cases as well as statutes relevant to the law of evidence. Illuminating commentary is provided, which should assist any student of the discipline to get to the core of these texts. Due attention has also been paid to the constitutional aspects of the law of evidence.
Die bewysreg is onmisbaar vir elke regspraktisyn en maak deel uit van die leerplan van elke Suid-Afrikaanse regskwalifikasie.

Tog word bewysreg as ’n moeilike vak beskou, veral vir diegene wat nog nooit in ’n geregshof was nie.
In hierdie boek het akademici met praktiese ervaring van die strafregstelsel ’n aantal besliste hofsake sowel as wetgewing van toepassing op die bewysreg uitgesoek. Die insiggewende kommentaar wat voorsien word, behoort enige student van bewysreg tot die kern van die tekste te help deurdring. Behoorlike aandag word ook geskenk aan die grondwetlike aspekte van die bewysreg.

This perspective will inform academics in the marketing field as well as industry practitioners on how customised marketing strategies can be developed to effectively reach each consumer.
