Significant amounts of theory are not applied to management practice, being too far removed from the world of practice or being sound but handled in a manner that confines them to academia. IJMP focuses on the pragmatics of informing management action/practice, translating existing theories into forms relevant, digestible and amenable to practical action, besides developing new insights by developing and examining leading edge managerial practices to enhance organisational performance. The challenges are dynamic, so the subject coverage is merely indicative.
Topics covered include
- Small/family business management, intra/entrepreneurship
- Government policy on entrepreneurship
- Creating marketing orientation
- Managing workplace motivation/pressure/stress
- De-layering, restructuring
- Managing learning and improvement
- Instilling creativity
- Managing globalisation and international business
- Managing supply chains
- E-management practices
- Sustainable finance
- Green reporting
- ESG investing
- Environmental policy
- Sustainable development
The aim of the IJMP is to help turn management theory into management practice. IJMP endeavours to illustrate pragmatic solutions to corporate problems and challenges.
Professionals, academics, researchers, and managers.
IJMP publishes papers that are able to show how to turn theory into practice or describe leading managerial practices that enable business performance. It will adopt a pragmatic and easy to read jargon free style. IJMP will encourage papers that develop frameworks and define processes that help to translate specific concepts and philosophy into organisational actions. The journal will also publish rigorously compiled case studies of companies that illustrate ||best practice|| ways of doing things, and highlight key challenges and ways of transferring these practices into other organisations.

Sleepless in IT
24 October, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Management Practice has looked at sleep disorders among information technology professionals with respect to psychological distress and conflicts between one's working life and family commitments. The study by an international team from Bangladesh, Chile and Spain used the statistical tool of partial least squares structural equation modelling to analyse data from a structured questionnaire completed by IT professionals.

The team found that financial insecurity and job pressure contributed significantly to work-family conflict. In addition, they linked the pressures of the job and excessive work contact to psychological distress. All of these factors then contributed to problems for the professionals in terms of their sleep patterns [...]More details...
