Abstract

Purpose – 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 – Effective management is a must for any business organization. In certain sectors though, such capabilities become even more imperative. Industries defined as being extremely hazardous are a case in point. Nuclear power plants illustrate this perfectly. Safety is obviously paramount in these complexes to the point where even a minor mishap can have grave consequences. When more serious accidents occur, devastating effects on humanity and the environment is virtually inevitable. Think Chernobyl. You'd be forgiven then for assuming that performance in all nuclear energy stations would be comparable and of the required standard. And why not? After all, the structural design and technology used is largely homogenous. Any differences in these respects are inconsequential. Originality/value – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.
