CMI / AIM Research Report – Delivering the Promise of Management Practices

The adoption and utilisation of new management practices is closely linked to productivity. Yet efforts by UK managers to translate new management practices into improved performance have been both slower and less successful than some of their counterparts in France, Germany and the US. It is imperative, therefore, that managers, policymakers and researchers achieve a better understanding of the challenges in realising the benefits of promising management practices for both firms and the economy. This research report challenges widely held assumptions about the value of management practices and provides recommendations and tools for managers and policymakers.
