Strategy Journeys by David Booth has been shortlisted for this year’s prize which was announced today by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the British Library.

The 25-strong shortlist for the overall £5,000 prize – sponsored by Henley Business School reflects and offers guidance on the challenges professional leaders face in managing multi-generational workforces increasingly shaped by technology and engaged through ethics.

, published by , has been shortlisted in the Practical Manager category. Strategy Journeys starts from the premise that strategic planning suffers from a bad press: it can be seen as complex, technical, remote from the day-to-day reality of an organisation, undertaken by an elite specialist executive group, producing threatening changes whose rationale is barely understood – or, perhaps worse still, having no worthwhile impact at all.

“Thousands of books on how to become a better manager and leader are published every year. Our shortlist directs everyone in the profession to those books that will make a definite difference to how they think and act as true management and leadership professionals. For those passionate about their career, the progressive and practical lessons within these books are essential reads,” said Petra Wilton, CMI’s director of strategy.

The competition has been split in to five categories: Management Futures; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Practical Manager; Commuter’s Read; and Management and Leadership Textbook. The winner of each category, as well as the overall winner will be announced at an awards evening at the British Library on 6 February 2018 – with the winning author taking home a £5,000 prize.

“The British Library is honoured and thrilled to be hosting the CMI Management Book of the Year awards again. Not only are we the UK’s national research Library with a world-class collection of management studies resource, but also we have a long and successful relationship with CMI and are delighted to be supporting them in their mission to develop management and leadership,” said Phil Spence, Chief Operating Officer at the British Library and a Companion of the CMI.
