Best management book of 2015 nomination: Professor Vlatka Hlupic, Westminster Business School

Business and Management; Marketing 27 October 2015

Westminster Business School Professor Vlatka Hlupic's recently published book, The Management Shift, has been nominated for the Chartered Management Institute's (CMI) best management book of 2015.

The competition has five categories, with Professor Hlupic nominated for the Practical Manager category. The five category winners and an overall winner will be announced at an awards evening at the British Library on 8 February 2016 – with the winning author taking home a £5,000 prize.

The Management Shift is based on leading-edge research supported by numerous case studies, which demonstrate the power and impact of change. It offers managers a practical and systemic approach to diagnose leadership issues in their organisation. It then provides an implementation process to shift their mindset and organisational culture to the new level of thinking, performance, and ultimately business success.

The book has received much praise from industry professionals. Read what people are saying and view the Management Shift leaflet.

Ann Francke, CMI chief executive, said about the awards:

"Many thousands of books on how to become a better manager are published every year. Our shortlist directs managers and leaders to those books that will make a definite difference to how they think and act as true management and leadership professionals. For those passionate about their career, the progressive and practical lessons within these books must be considered essential reads."
