Using this Site

We provide open access to a series of short summaries under the heading “Five minutes on…”.

They are short, hopefully sharp, summaries providing a subject overview/introduction. They may not answer all your questions but we hope you will find them helpful, provocative, stimulating and informative.

If you want to know more and have a couple of hours to invest, you will find the “take a deeper dive” learning units very useful. They include the latest thinking from academics and writers on management.

Most of them are about 25 pages in length. One from each theme is open source, for the rest we charge a small fee to cover the costs of managing this site.


Corporate & Social Responsibility

Corporate and social responsibility (CSR) concerns how organisations conduct their work in a way that takes into account of their social, economic and environmental impact and considers the of human rights of all stakeholders; internal and external.


Developing the Business

This requires continual improvement to ensure profitability and competitive performance of the business, its processes, its speed of response and its ability to deliver cost-effective and timely outputs.


Leading Teams

Work collaboratively as a member of a team, ensuring that one’s own contribution maximises the team’s overall performance.


Managing Change

Plan and manage change within the organisation so as to transform the business to achieve the intended commercial, structural and organisational outcomes.


Managing Yourself (and Others)

Plan, organise, monitor and improve your own performance needs a certain level of reflection and self-assessment. The aim -to produce timely, accurate and innovative outputs, even when you are under pressure or working in times of uncertainty.
