About this book


In the context of a united Europe the influence of business knowledge has become increasingly relevant, as managers, employees and organisations have to learn new practices and techniques in response to new knowledge and institutions. This book addresses the way in which administrative knowledge is produced, diffused and consumed in Europe by academics, management gurus, publishing houses, consultants and practitioners. It also looks at its impact on European business systems and management practices.
