Overview

Challenges and Controversies in Management Research explores the history and cultural context, current issues and controversies and potential development of research in the field of management. The collection of essays is written by scholars of international standing, and the chapters address the development of management research in one or another continent, the need for global collaboration, the current state of management research and the development of the business school setting in which that research takes place. Factors affecting management research are explored in detail, giving consideration to the relationship between teaching, ethical conduct, publication, quality audits, collegiality and research. Contributions in the book also explore the development and usefulness of theories in management research and consider the relevance of management research and its applicability for management practice, policy-makers and the voluntary sector. A final section of contributions explores the future challenges for management research including the realization of reflexivity, the enduring gender bias of the management field, the future of theory, the patterns of development of new areas of management research and the need to manage large databases.
