Reviews

Students will like this book, because it offers a highly processed analysis which introduces important contextual influences and deals explicitly with the Management Development 'things' their organisations do. - Dr Michael Clark, Senior Lecturer, University of the West of England

The authors use international case studies as well as UK ones, which is of paramount importance today. - Dr David Bright, Senior Lecturer in HRM and Director of Postgraduate Programmes, Hull University Business School

The text is well-written and accessible, yet also highly developed, demonstrating familiarity with contemporary MD practices and issues. The chapters cover a broad range and diversity of theory which is well summarised with clarity and appropriate brevity. - Kate Black, University of Chester
