Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is twofold. First, we wish to validate and extend our own findings by identifying points of agreement with other researchers. Second, where other studies have produced results which in some way confront our own findings we are obliged to try to explain why a difference has occurred. The extent to which we can undertake these operations is limited. It is quite apparent that the aims, scale and scope of research into general management require clarification. A brief summary is presented below by way of a pre-condition to drawing comparison between substantive research findings including our own.
