Abstract [en]

Defining Management charts the expansion of management as an idea and practice from a time when it was limited to churches and households to its current ubiquity, focusing in particular on the role of business schools, consultants, and business media in this process. How did an entire industry develop around business schools, consultants, and business media which are now widely considered the authorities regarding best management practice? This book shows how these actors, on their own and in interaction: (1) became taken-for-granted and gained such definitional power over management and managers; (2) expanded across the globe from often modest and not always respected origins; and (3) impacted, and continue to impact businesses and increasingly, the broader economic and social context.
