Unlike other biographical dictionaries of business, this is not simply an enumeration of the great and the good. To qualify for inclusion, subjects must have either made an important contribution to the discipline of management, or be outstanding exemplars of important trends. Thus we include many businesspeople and business academics, but also many from outside the strict bounds of the discipline whose ideas and actions have nonetheless had an impact on how business is done today. Economists, inventors, strategists, futurists,ethicists, psychologists and many others will appear, men and women whose thinking has helped shaped our thinking about management. Far more than just another exercise in business history, the Biographical Dictionary of Management is in part an attempt to describe a philosophy of management. To that end, the authors of this work include not only business academics but also professional business people and business journalists, historians and futurists, economists and specialists in many fields. By giving the topic the broadest possible scope, we hope to capture all the richness and diversity of management thinking, past and present.
