The A-List : World's Most Respected Management Books

Best Management Books
Best Management Books

IIM's Management Society recognizes and honors the works of the world's top management authors. A team of IIM researchers conducted the study. Researchers' criteria for accepting nominations included the importance of work, media coverage, recognition within the consulting, academia and international management communities.  According to Mr. Med Jones, Editor-in-Chief, no "elite" list is all inclusive, there are many excellent books that do not have equal media or research exposure. The nomination for A List is open worldwide. To participate in the survey, please visit IIM's Global Management Polls

Methodology & Ranking Criteria

The survey methodology provides the ability to validate nominations and allows insights into the nominees' critical success factors.

  • Public stakeholders can nominate their most respected books and their authors

  • Voters are then asked to give the reasons for their nominations, thus providing valuable insight into what key factors drive the success of these nominees. Questions are presented in free-form and open-ended formats.

  • Further research is conducted to validate the entries using sales figures, readers ratings and industry impact as expressed in the global media.

  • After verification and acceptance of the nomination, the input is then statistically analyzed taking into consideration the geographic region, the number of votes, the listed reasons and the order in which they are listed.

  • When two or more book score equally on overall ratings (reach a tie) IIM editors refer to the number of votes.

In a nutshell, the public nominates, IIM editors validate the nominations, and the number votes determines the respectability and ranking.


The following is a list of the best management books
