Some somewhat remarkable changes took place in North American business schools between 1945 and 1970, altering the character of these institutions, the possibilities for their future, and the terms of discourse about them. This era represents a minor revolution, throughout which business school are reported to have transform more academic, more analytic, and more quantitative.

The Roots, Rituals, and Rhetorics of Change considers these changes and explores their roots. It traces the origins of this quiet revolution and shows the way it shaped discussions about management education, leading to a shift in that weakened the place of job cases and experiential knowledge and strengthened give a boost to for a concept of professionalism that applied to management.

The text considers how the rhetoric of change used to be organized around three core questions: Will have to business schools concern themselves primarily with experiential knowledge or with academic knowledge? What vision of managers and management Will have to be reflected by business schools? How Will have to managerial education connect its teaching to a couple version of reality?
