Women head list in MCA book prize
Women candidates dominate the shortlist for the 1997 Management Consultancies Association book prize to be held on 25 March.
Judges for the #5,000 first prize book award, which is in its fifth year, have whittled down the numbers from 90 to a shortlist of five books, four of which are by women.
“This is the first time we have had four women out of a shortlist of five; last year’s winner was also a woman,” said MCA executive director Brian O’Rorke.
Shortlisted books are: The Death of Distance: How the Communications Revolution Will Change Our Lives by Frances Cairncross; The Black and Ethnic Minority Woman Manager: Cracking the Concrete Ceiling by Marilyn J Davidson; Motivating People in Lean Organizations by Linda Holbeche; Creating Value: Shaping Tomorrow’s Business by Shiv S Mathur & Alfred Kenyon; and, Break Up! When Large Companies are Worth More Dead than Alive by David Sadtler.
