'What makes this book a unique innovative source full of surprising insights is that management panaceas are examined by most competent scholars. In highly readable chapters it is pointed out what it takes to successfully adapt panaceas to different contexts. Adaptation is necessary since management panaceas are all but 'all-healing' and without contextualization they lose their persuasive power which is a crucial ingredient for their healing power.'
- Alfred Kieser, Mannheim University and Research Zeppelin University, Germany

Over time management ideas and panaceas have been presented alternately as quick fix cures for all corporate ills and the emperor's new clothes, beset by flaws and problems. This Handbook provides a different approach, suggesting that management ideas and panaceas should not be either adopted or rejected outright, but gives guidance in the art of assessing and applying management ideas and panaceas to various situations and contexts.

The contributors discuss the ways in which researchers, organizational actors and higher educational institutions can more wisely test the relevance of management ideas and panaceas, and adapt these to fit organizations in various contexts. They conclude that, in order to accomplish wiser relevance-testing and adaptation, there is a need for diversity, critical examination and transparency.

All students, scholars and researchers in management and organization with an interest in the adaptation and translation of management ideas and panaceas, will find this book to be of interest. Reflective practitioners will find the focus on context illuminating and helpful.
