Prof Piet Naudé

Academic research is important. However, there is also a need for knowledge that could be applied directly or at least quite smoothly to actual business problems. This requires a translation of theory into practice; it requires a different genre than pure academic language to ensure wider accessibility; and it requires a different form of validation from actual knowledge users instead of collegial peer reviews. This is what USB Management Review is about.
