Management research: Guide for institutions and professionals, by Roger Bennett
Management Development Series No. 20

In management and administration, research is a neglected activity. The collective experience of many institutions, centres and schools is reflected in chapters on the purpose and nature of management research, policy and planning, organising research, disseminating and using its results, and training competent research workers. The purpose of the book is to help to make management research, in both industrialised and developing countries, more productive, more useful to the trainer and, above all, more relevant to the world of practice.
