Management Impact Book Series

Management Impact

About the Series

Scholarly research into business and management proliferates globally. Its impact into management practice can be difficult to monitor and measure. Our first series, published in association with Routledge, presents shortform books that demonstrate how management scholarship has impacted upon the real world.

Incorporating case study examples and highlighting the link between scholarship, policy and practice, the series provides an essential resource for postgraduate students and researchers seeking to understand how to create impact through their work. The concise nature of the books also ensures that they can be useful reading for reflective practitioners.
