Abstract

Purpose – This paper reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – An increasingly critical challenge for the UK is to ensure that the substantial investments in science and technology, skills and education that the government has made, and continues to make, are more effectively translated into innovation and wealth creation by business in the UK. Therefore, having rigorously assessed over 100 technologies, The Council for Science and Technology has identified six key technologies where larger‐scale focus by the UK government now could accelerate the real commercial returns and social benefits to the UK over the next five years. Practical implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
