Authoritative and comprehensive yet concise and convenient, this is the definitive single volume reference guide to the management sciences. In 1400 entries totalling half a million words, it covers all the concepts, terminology and techniques of management theory and practice.

Compiled by an international team of editors from eleven of the world's top business schools, it provides definitions and discussions written by leading researchers at Harvard, Stanford, Duke, London Business School and many other leading institutions.

Entries range between concise definitions of terms and longer 5,000 word essays reviewing today's understanding of central concepts in management theory. Throughout, the book combines academic rigor with clarity and accessibility.

For the student of business and management, the Concise Encyclopaedia will be an essential vade mecum for their studies; for the specialist, it offers insights from leading researchers; for the working manager it will be a one stop guide to today's management theory.
