‘Clear, effective, and helpful! Writing and publishing in leading academic journals has become more challenging than ever before. Business schools emphasize impact, reach and relevance as critical elements when evaluating published research. Wright, Ketchen and Clark have made some nice additions to their popular first edition by bringing in a new generation of scholars, emphasizing practice, and exploring new avenues for impact. Would highly recommend for aspiring scholars starting afresh as well as established researchers focused on impact.’
