Following the announcements early this month, we are delighted to announce that the SAGE text, Practicing Strategy by Sotirios Paroutis, Loizos Heracleous and Duncan Angwin has been shortlisted for this year’s Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Management Book of the Year award.
The prize, awarded annually by the CMI in association with the British Library, aims to celebrate the very best in the field of management writing. The competition, now in its fourth year, is sponsored by Henley Business School.
Practicing Strategy is one of five books shortlisted in the “Management and Leadership Textbook” category, which recognises the best books that will most effectively support a course of study on a management and leadership topic.
Piers Cain, Head of Knowledge Management, CMI, said: “The standard has been very high this year and we are delighted with the shortlist, which highlights some very key management issues. The idea behind the competition is to highlight nuggets of ‘Management Gold’ to give practical advice to managers in what is a very crowded management and business book market. In truth, too many managers are only just managing, but these books can help them really start achieving. Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted this year.”
The winner of this category will be announced at an awards evening at the British Library on 3rd February 2014.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish our authors the best of luck at the ceremony next year!
