Management practice and creative destruction

existential skills for inquiring managers, researchers and educators

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In Management Practice and Creative Destruction, Steven Segal changes our understanding both of management and research through his exploration of the concept of Creative Destruction. He explains how progress and development can also have negative and destructive effects within the same environment, and that in order to embrace new ways of doing things it is necessary to let go of the old. This is both frightening and exciting. The book finds new ways of looking at management and provides a framework for managers, management educators, theorists and researchers to turn moments of creative disruption into opportunities for curious inquiry into their practices. It fully explores a mode of inquiry that is only beginning to emerge in management research and theory.
