Kogan Page is proud to announce that In Your Creative Element by Claire Bridges and Building Digital Culture by Daniel Rowles and Thomas Brown have been shortlisted for this year’s Management Book of the Year prize which was announced today by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the British Library.

The 25-strong shortlist for the overall £5,000 prize - sponsored by Henley Business School reflects and offers guidance on the challenges professional leaders face in managing multi-generational workforces increasingly shaped by technology and engaged through ethics.

Shortlisted in the Management Futures category, In Your Creative Element, helps readers identify a personal formula for creative success by following nine groupings of 62 creative elements based on the periodic table, covering the principles, values and attitudes associated with creativity.

Shortlisted in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship category, Building Digital Culture aims to answer a simple question: How can organizations succeed when the environment they operate in is changing so quickly? It provides insider stories from leading companies including BMW, Twitter, Deloitte and Bloomberg, and discusses how digital culture has improved their business practices, leading to increased adaptability and productivity.

Our shortlist directs everyone in the profession 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 are essential reads.”

The competition has been split in to five categories: Management Futures; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Practical Manager; Commuter’s Read; and Management and Leadership Textbook. The winner of each category, as well as the overall winner will be announced at an awards evening at the British Library on 6 February 2018 – with the winning author taking home a £5,000 prize.
