This paper discusses the lives and contributions of five key members of the Management History Division: Arthur G. Bedeian; Alfred A. Bolton; James C. Worthy (now deceased); Charles D. Wrege; and Daniel A. Wren. Each has proved himself a teacher and intellectual leader in matters of fundamental concern to management history.
Currently, only a small number of manuscripts dealing with management history are being submitted to journals, and few of those are being accepted for publication. What is needed to change this situation is more high‐quality research that is more interesting to a wider audience. The purpose of this paper is to offer some suggestions for overcoming current deficiencies.
The perspective of one editor about what is being done and what might be done in terms of publishing management history research is presented.
The unique perspective of an individual who is a past editor of a major management journal and current editor of an online journal each of which has published a variety of management history articles is presented.
The paper stresses that too few management history manuscripts submitted to journals are of high‐enough quality or sufficiently interesting to merit publication and that more good quality research that is interesting to a wider audience is needed. The paper offers suggestions to management history scholars as a means of changing this situation.
To assist colleagues in tying current ideas to previously established practices. To generate discussion of the current relevance of students' understanding management history.
A review of representative classic theorists with an eye toward matching their behavior to that of current newsmakers. This is presented in a model to insure that like areas are compared.
The past is in the present. Although we may live in the day of “enlightened” “collaborative” management; there are still successful people who operate differently.
Readers of the paper will be able to make immediate application of the model.
Even presentation of the obvious has value. The model format is a dynamic document that others can use and improve upon.
