Shortlist 2018

The CMI Management Book of the Year shortlist has now been announced! The 25 books represent true ‘ManagementGold’ – books which make a very strong contribution to the field and which are certainly worth the time of a busy manager.

Five books have been shortlisted in each category – you can browse these below. During the next stages of judging, five category winners will be chosen. An overall winner will then be selected from these to be awarded the title of CMI Management Book of the Year and a cash prize!
