Management research in business schools faces increasing internal and external criticism for the production of rigorous and theoretically grounded but irrelevant research (Mintzberg, 2004; Pfeffer, 2007). This criticism is compounded by often unfavourable comparisons between the academic stature of business schools relative to other professional schools (e.g. medicine, law and engineering) (Bennis and O'Toole, 2005; Khurana, 2007) and to the university communities which they reside (Starkey and Tiratsoo, 2007).
