SAGE Key Concepts series
Ideal as an introduction and as a quick reference, Key Concepts in Critical Management Studies explores the essential concepts used within the field today. Specially edited and written by a range of international experts, key ideas are succinctly explained and illustrated beyond a simple definition. Further reading suggestions and cross-referencing provide the reader with means to develop their knowledge further.
With over 50 entries, from Actor Network Theory to Utopianism, readers have instant access and explanation of the most influential concepts in CMS literature. Clear and engaging, this will provide strong support for all courses involving critical management and is a perfect resource for anyone with an interest in this field.
A very good book which provides concise and operational definitions of the key areas in CMS. In particular, each section point to further reading well. The book is not in a format useful for a core text, but certainly as supplemental material for broader understanding this will be useful. I will use this as supplementary reading in my strategy courses and also for certain research projects students.
It was good but the concepts lacked depth in providing a much more detailed understanding of the key disciplines and theories underpinning CMS
An EXCELLENT compendium. Essential as a supplementary resource on any management/organisation studies course with critical content.
This text provides good summaries of a range of relevant CMS topics. Each entry is clear, concise and provides helpful follow-up references. The text will be very helpful for students new to studies in business and management whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
This book offers valuable background information for students to develop familiarity with CMS
Useful supplemental reading.
An intersting text, however some students will at times find the discussion hard to follow.
Good supportive information - Strategic Leadership course - Mastere Level
Very nice overview and introduction to key concepts.
