Think: Cranfield
Think: Cranfield is the online newsletter of Cranfield School of Management. It features the latest in management thinking and research output from Cranfield's world class faculty and researchers.

The May edition looks at the wider role of leadership, starting with Rethinking Leadership. The global dimension is considered, with first-hand experience from Professor Andrew Kakabadse. The leader’s role in change is examined in Reconnecting after Change. The part managers play in leading for business performance is made explicit from Cranfield research in How Managers Deliver Business Performance. Finally two articles draw on Cranfield surveys to bring facts bear on Has the Halo Slipped from Japanese firms? And Who Won the 2010 Election Marketing Campaign?
