The Management Book of the Year competition is organised by the Chartered Management Institute in cooperation with the British Library and sponsored by Henley Business School. 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.

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 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. 

This year’s theme is Management 4.0: the fourth industrial revolution, which looks for practical, future-focused books which explore the impact of any of the following areas on the future of the Management and Leadership profession:


  • Technology & AI

  • Societal Shifts

  • Patterns of Work

  • Business Models

  • Leaderships Styles

  • Lifelong Learning


The winner will be announced in May at the CMI’s President’s Dinner.

You can find out more about the competition and the shortlisted titles at the Management Book of the Year website.
