Abstract

Purpose

Reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

Learning is not always about the big things. Learning something which could ultimately be vital to a career or a business, or both, does not always have to be about the strategic changes in direction which learning organizations can assess, quantify, measure and score. Sometimes it only takes a tweak – maybe resulting from a CEO's epiphany in realizing that being nice to the employees can bring untold benefits.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to digest format.
