Synopsis

Despite continuing equal opportunity approaches, women are still significantly under-represented at senior management levels and earn less than male colleagues. The author questions whether competence systems - developed and implemented in the workplace to provide objective measurement of management performance - contribute to, rather than improve, women's disadvantaged position in the workplace.



Drawing together the threads of critical theory, feminism and post-modernism into a new conceptual framework, the book provides an exciting departure from existing methods of analysis and points a new and challenging way forward for future researchers in management.



The Construction of Management is a rich and lively work, providing innovative theoretical and methodological approaches as well as practical solutions. In this way, the book will appeal to scholars of business and management, industrial relations and gender studies as well as business managers and consultants.
