About the Author:

Emma Bell is Professor of Organisation Studies at the Open University Business School, UK. Emma’s research focuses on the ways in which people collectively construct meaning through work. Key themes include: change and organizational loss, embodiment and media representations of management, spirituality and belief in organizations, and craft work businesses. Her approach to understanding these issues draws on insights from the social sciences and humanities, and involves critical, interpretive analysis of mainly qualitative data. She also writes about methods and methodologies in management research.

Richard Thorpe is Professor of Management Development and Pro Dean for Research at Leeds University Business School. His research interests have included: performance, entrepreneurship, knowledge and leadership as well as research methods in management research.  His early career as a management trainee on a Clarks programme informed the way his ethos has developed. Following a period in industry his first academic appointment was as a researcher at Strathclyde University in the Pay and Reward Research Centre. There, as a consequence of the research conducted he developed close links with practitioners, intermediaries and policy makers, something he has strived to maintain as his career progressed. Common themes in his work are: a strong commitment to conducting research in collaboration with practitioners; a focus on action and change; an interest in and commitment to the development of doctoral students and the development of capacity within the sector. Richard has been past president and chair of the British Academy of Management and member of the ESRC Training and Development Board. He is currently chair of the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies.

Review:

'Who knew that Management Research could be this be much fun? The authors cover a lot of important ground without appearing to, keeping the reader engaged and in good humour throughout'--Brad Jackson (09/04/2013)

'A wonderfully clear, engaging, and fun book to read. An invaluable introduction to management research and one that I shall be using with my students for years to come'--Albert Mills (09/04/2013)

'By providing a lively and accessible introduction to management research - which is theoretically informed and methodologically inclusive - Bell and Thorpe's timely text offers illuminating responses to a wide range of issues raised by students entering this field'--Hugh Willmott (09/04/2013)

'Among the weighty tomes on management research methods, this lively, elegant and readable guide is welcome indeed. Emma and Richard carry their deep knowledge of the field lightly, distilling complex debates and terminology into a lucid navigation of the key issues in management research. It should be on every graduate student's bookshelf - and probably on their supervisors as well'--Amanda Sinclair (09/04/2013)

[T]his is more a book about how to think about management research than a book on how to do management research per se: and this is very much its strength. This process is conveyed in the following ways: first, the book emphasises the messiness of the research process and gives licence not to know all the answers and to be puzzled and confused at times. Second, Emma and Richard (as they describe themselves in the text) provide honest accounts and interesting vignettes of their own research experiences and dilemmas and, as such, position themselves not (just) as experts within the field but also, through their 'warts and all' accounts, as researchers who have hunches but are not always sure how to research them, who have highs and lows in the research process and who have sometimes taken wrong turns along the way. Third, the book poses some fundamental questions, which urge the researcher to step back, consider options and debate possibilities before acting in order to better understand the nature of choices they make and the implications for the research that this produces.--Sarah Robinson

[A] colourful, engaging and challenging discussion regarding the tenets and process of management research.

--Dr Orna O'Brien

Descripción SAGE Publications Ltd. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Management Research, Richard Thorpe, Emma Bell, Bell and Thorpe are engaging companions for this journey into the complex world of management research. They provide a stimulating and critical overview of the key theoretical debates on research paradigms and methodologies and relate them to the day to day practice of the research, demystifying the process and providing invaluable insights into the politics and practice of research. Unlike most books about management research, this little book does not present the process as logical, rationale and predictable. Instead, it explores the messy and unpredictable nature of management research and the fascinating reasons behind this. In doing so, it will give you the confidence and understanding to experiment and improvise while carrying out your research. Incorporating research tales from within the workplace, Bell and Thorpe have triumphed in bringing you a fun and thought-provoking discourse on management research that you will treasure.
