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) 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 also benefits practising managers by providing insights from credible, authoritative and leading edge researchers from UK universities. This collection features five of the best articles submitted in 2012-13, the second year of the competition, as rated by CMI’s members. The first article was the overall winner:

  1. Improving the quality of working life: positive steps for senior management teams by Les Worrall, Coventry University and Cary Cooper, Lancaster University Management School.
  2. Failure, survival or success in a turbulent environment: the dynamic capabilities lifecycle by Sarah E Dixon, Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University Business School in Suzhou, China.
  3. A new role emerges in downsizing: special envoys by Ian Ashman, University of Central Lancashire.
  4. Only a click away? What makes virtual meetings, emails and outsourcing successful by Karin Moser, University of Roehampton
  5. Closing the needs-to-offer gap: customer relationship management in retail SMEs by Karise Hutchinson, Andrea Reid and Lisa Donnell, University of Ulster.
