Product description

Review

`An accessible introduction to the field, this book enables students to tackle issues, offering a definite statement of basic methodologies for management research issues' - Management Research News

Praise for the First Edition:

`I will be recommending the book to graduate researchers at master's and doctoral level. It is a book which deserves to succeed for its honesty, clarity, and common sense' - Leadership and Organizational Development Journal

`An accessible relaxed style enables the authors to deal with issues that are intellectually demanding and at times controversial, encouraging the researcher to develop a self-reflexive capacity to manage research as both personal and public learning' - Management Education and Development Journal

About the Author

http://www.lums.lancs.ac.uk/dml/profiles/64/

Richard Thorpe is Professor of Management Development and Pro Dean for Research at Leeds University Business School. His research interests have included: performance, entrepreneurship, knowledge and leadership as well as research methods in management research.  His early career as a management trainee on a Clarks programme informed the way his ethos has developed. Following a period in industry his first academic appointment was as a researcher at Strathclyde University in the Pay and Reward Research Centre. There, as a consequence of the research conducted he developed close links with practitioners, intermediaries and policy makers, something he has strived to maintain as his career progressed. Common themes in his work are: a strong commitment to conducting research in collaboration with practitioners; a focus on action and change; an interest in and commitment to the development of doctoral students and the development of capacity within the sector. Richard has been past president and chair of the British Academy of Management and member of the ESRC Training and Development Board. He is currently chair of the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies.
