Management Book of the Year: discovering the best in management writing

Your use of this content is subject to the terms and conditions of this portal

The annual Management Book of the Year competition seeks out the very best in management writing – writing with the potential to develop and inspire working managers and managers of the future.

The competition is organised by the Chartered Management Institute in cooperation with the British Library and the judges look for a book that has the potential to transform the effectiveness of working managers or to equip students for future management roles.

There are five category winners from which, each year, one overall winning author is awarded the title of Management Book of the Year and a cash prize of £5,000.

Since the competition began in 2011, winning books have ranged widely across the field of management - celebrating frugal innovation, embracing uncertainty and championing originality.

All of the 2017 competition entries are on display in the Business and IP Centre reading room at the British Library so our registered readers have the chance to explore the variety of current writing on management and business topics.  And copies of the 2018 competition entries will also be available from mid-September 2017 onwards.

The winning Management Book of the Year for 2018 will be announced in February during an awards evening held in the British Library’s Knowledge Centre in central London.
