Routledge Key Thinkers in Business and Management

About the Series

Students of business often emerge from their years of business school training without having had the benefit of seeing how its ideas have evolved. A black hole is developing in management education, and the intellectual vacuum needs to be addressed. The solution is to look at the major intellectual figures in the development of business, management and organisation thinking and practice. In short, who are the makers of modern management? And why should we care?

This series provides authoritative accounts of the key thinkers across the business disciplines. Critical, contextual and comprehensive, books in the series will include figures who’ve made significant impacts to management thought and practice – many of whom may not originally be known as management thinkers, per se.
