The Manchester Method: A Leaders We Deserve Monograph

Front Cover
Leaders We Deserve monographs are based on over a thousand posts originally published on the Leaders We Deserve blog over the period 2006-2015. The monographs explore a space between the scholarly style of the traditional textbook and the dynamism of the e-format. They offer the possibility of a learning community in which readers and authors are able to interact and influence the contents of the monographs. Each post is linked to theoretical ideas such as charismatic leadership, critical theory, discursive leadership, and corporate social responsibility. Many posts have been taught as mini-business cases within the Manchester Business School executive MBA programmes around the world. The topic of the first monograph which was published in 2015 is The Manchester Method, an approach to experiential learning which has been associated with Manchester Business School for several decades as a means of supporting business education. The monograph updates twelve posts from the perspectives of Business School tutors, leadership researchers and MBA executives. It provides a historical record of the roles played by educational pioneers Grigor McClelland and Reg Revans. Other topics covered include The Manchester Method as Social Networking, The Importance of Communities of Practice, and Creative Leadership and Team Effectiveness.
