CMI aims to bring the best research on management topics from leading universities and business schools in the UK to managers in the workplace. This is why CMI (in association with the ABS, AIM Research, BAM and the British Library) has launched Management Articles of the Year, an annual competition open to academic researchers affiliated to a UK university. The purpose of the competition is to assist universities in disseminating their research findings to a wider practising audience, help them demonstrate social and economic impact and raise the profile of their work with employers. It will also benefit practising managers by providing them with insights from credible, authoritative and leading edge researchers from UK universities. This collection features five of the best articles submitted in 2011-12, the first year of the competition, as rated by CMI’s members. The first article was the overall winner:
- The need to get more for less: a new model of ‘engaging transformational leadership’ and evidence of its effect on team productivity, and staff morale and wellbeing at work by Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe and Juliette Alban-Metcalfe, University of Bradford School of Management.
- Leading through change: To what extent is a transformational approach appropriate during unprecedented restructuring of the Police? by Ian Hesketh, Lancaster University Management School.
- Rethinking change: downsizing businesses, changing behaviours and still managing to come out on top by Michael J.R. Butler, David Crundwell, and Mike Sweeney, Aston Business School.
- Delivering practice based stories of small and medium enterprise by Robert Smith and Charles Juwah, Aberdeen Business School, Robert Gordon University.
