New book ‘Management Research – Applying the Principles’

I don’t think I’ve told you this, yet: I co-authored a book with Susan Rose and Nigel Spinks. The title is ‘Management Research – Applying the Principles’ and is published by Routledge.


As suggested by the title, it is a research methods book focused on the context and the needs of those conducting research in business and management. The book is divided sections that reflect the key stages of a research project, and includes practical guidance on how to apply the concepts discussed to an ongoing research project. We keep philosophical discussion to a minimum – the focus is on helping novice researchers to define, set up and carry out research and to communicate their findings.

The book is available from 17th July 2014 (though you can pre-order) and we are now working on the materials for the companion website.


If you are in a position to review and/or recommend the book, it will be much appreciated 🙂
