What is New in “A New History of Management”?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Electronic versions



This paper evaluates the contributions of the so-called “Historic Turn” in Organization Studies through the attempt by Cummings et al. (2016) to offer a new and alternative approach to teaching and researching the history of management ideas. A New History of Management is intended to be a provocation rather than a practical plan, and by their own admission Cummings et al. (2016) prefer controversy to detailed analysis.
