Management Studies in Crisis : Fraud, Deception and Meaningless Research, Hardback Book

Management Studies in Crisis : Fraud, Deception and Meaningless Research Hardback


More students study management and organization studies than ever, the number of business schools worldwide continues to rise, and more management research is being published in a greater number of journals than could have been imagined twenty years ago.

Dennis Tourish looks beneath the surface of this progress to expose a field in crisis and in need of radical reform.

He identifies the ways in which management research has lost its way, including a remoteness from the practical problems that managers and employees face, a failure to replicate key research findings, poor writing, endless obscure theorizing, and an increasing number of research papers being retracted for fraud and other forms of malpractice.

Tourish suggests fundamental changes to remedy these issues, enabling management research to become more robust, more interesting and more valuable to society.

A must read for academics, practising managers, university administrators and policy makers within higher education.
