There has been a decided shift towards desiring greater “relevance” in management education by serving the needs of management practice. The importance of a careful defi nition of “relevance” and the retention of a critical perspective needs to be asserted. In this respect, what Hugo Letiche and Geoff Lightfoot have done together, and written up in this book, is an outstanding example of a commitment to restore “relevance” via critical engagement to management pedagogy and practice. Their success is a clear demonstration of the practical relevance of imagination, commitment and scholarship.
