Handbook of Research on Managing Managers

About the eBook

This exciting and comprehensive Handbook brings together leading international HR scholars to review existing research and highlight the current and future cross-cutting issues and challenges facing managerial practice and education. It is a particularly stimulating read in defining the field and setting the future research agenda.'
- Susan Cartwright, Lancaster University, UK

In recent years, there has been considerable debate on the future of management but less attention on the changing role of managers in the workplace. This book considers the ways in which managers themselves are being managed. In so doing, the contributors reflect upon the research conducted to date and the potential research pathways.

With contributions from experts in the field, the book explores the ways organisations manage their managers and how this continues to evolve globally. Themes discussed include talent management, evidence-based management, the nature of managerial work, management learning, and education and development as well as women in management and cross-cultural issues.

Academics, researchers, analysts and students will find this an important Handbook to aid in their understanding of the contemporary world of managers.
