Combining articles, case studies and management reflections from a range of academics and practitioners, Cunningham and Harrington's Irish Management 2.0 is a compelling commentary on the future of management practice and business education in Ireland.

The concept of the knowledge economy has changed the management paradigm for Irish managers. Looking forward, the key challenge for all Irish businesses will lie in international competitiveness. How will Irish businesses compete on a global scale? The answer is through developing managerial excellence, fostering individual creativity, building new collaborative organisational forms, and organisational flexibility.

In order to hone managerial excellence in Ireland, Irish Management 2.0 outlines that there must be greater investment in managerial development at firm level and, importantly, in stronger and sustainable collaborations between Irish managers and business school academics, both nationally and internationally.

Irish Management 2.0 is an essential resource for students and practitioners, and for anyone interested in the future of Irish business.
