Critical management education in action : personal tales of management unlearning.

Learmonth, M. (2007) 'Critical management education in action : personal tales of management unlearning.', Academy of Management learning & education., 6 (1). pp. 109-113.


In this essay I explore personal experiences while a practicing manager. I offer autobiographical stories from this time that emphasize, in particular, management's political and emotional dimensions. These narratives are used to illustrate shortcomings in management education that exclude critical perspectives, and to illustrate the potential value of receiving critical management education (CME), a value I feel to be important, in spite of the practical difficulties, for those with the desire to aim toward becoming critically informed managers.
