Management - Authoritative Research Guide - Oxford Bibliographies
Management is the process of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling an organization’s financial, physical, human, and information resources in ways intended to achieve and maintain organizational effectiveness. Because the business world exists in a dynamic and fluid environment, the essential elements, processes, and functions (and the interrelationships among these) that comprise management are subject to constant change. It is therefore critical that students, scholars, and professionals stay abreast of new theoretical ideas, new interpretations, and new empirical findings, but the vast array of unpredictable and uncontrollable variables makes it difficult to find the best current information. Oxford Bibliographies in Management will offer students and researchers alike a reliable, up-to-date, and authoritative guide to the best literature in the field.
Organizational behavior is the multidisciplinary study of human behavior within organizational settings and the organization itself, while the area of cross-cultural management examines the influence of societal cultures on individuals and management practice. This page features a curated selection of annotated bibliographies drawn from Oxford Bibliographies in Management, designed to help scholars understand key theories and topics in our discipline.
