Going beyond wellrehearsed criticisms of business schools and programmatic calls for incremental change, Ambrosini and colleagues argue that business school leaders must change the raison d’être of their organisations to focus on sustainability. The authors’ skilful marshalling of evidence and insight convinces of the need for transformation. Their deep appreciation of the institutional context surfaces many barriers to progress. For those who are brave enough to try to address these challenges, this book will provide an authoritative source of inspiration.’ – Martin Kitchener, Cardiff University, UK Jan 2023 128 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 120 8 £70.00 / $99.00 eBook • Elgaronline • How To Guides Handbook of Multi-Level Climate Actions Sparking and Sustaining Transformative Approaches Edited by Mark Starik, University of Wisconsin Extended Campus, Gordon P.
