    schema:description ""Economics, law, philosophy and many others fell short of our comparable academic history journal criterion for selecting comparators. However, the history of medicine and the history of architecture did meet our needs. Like management and business, these are stochastic fields where, while we may be guided by theories or principles, we must adjust our thinking and re-calibrate our actions as our subjects or cases or stakeholders respond in individual ways to previous interventions in changing environments. Our initial investigations also revealed that there seemed to be no recent laments in these fields about the lack of new ideas. Consequently, we sought to analyse and contrast what their histories recorded with management and business history"--"@en ;

But this assumption is based on a presentist, monocultural, and generally limited view of management's past. A New History of Management disputes these foundations. By reassessing conventional perspectives on past management theories and providing a new critical outline of present-day management, it highlights alternative conceptions of 'good management' focused on ethical aims, sustainability, and alternative views of good practice. From this new historical perspective, existing assumptions can be countered and simplistic views disputed, offering a platform from which graduate students, researchers and reflective practitioners can develop alternative approaches for managing and organizing in the twenty-first century"--"@en ;
