Purpose of this paper

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.


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


There are relatively minor disagreements such as whether to put milk in cups before or after the hot tea (answer: before). There are more serious disagreements such as Brexit, which has split the UK down the middle. But when it comes to sheer, visceral, instantaneous vitriol, nothing comes close to the reaction people have when someone turns the air conditioning up or down in an open plan office. One can predict that while one half of the room are eternally grateful for the “blessed relief”, the other half will turn apoplectic with anger at the worsening conditions. There rarely seems to be a happy medium.

Practical implications

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

What is original/value of paper?

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.
