The Chartered Management Institute’s Management Book of the Year prize was created to honour the best in the field of management writing. Held in association with the British Library, and sponsored by Henley Business School, this competition aims to celebrate the best of management books published or distributed in the UK; books that have the potential to transform the effectiveness of working managers or equip students for future management roles.
With regard to equipping students for future management roles, it is interesting to note that this award has a Management and Leadership Textbook category. This title is awarded to the entry that, in the opinion of the judges (but not necessarily our academics), will most effectively support a course of study on a management and leadership topic. All of these textbooks are available from USW libraries, so please use the links below if you see a title that you think could be useful for you!
