Can There Be a Science of Business?
This chapter is concerned with whether there can be such a thing as a science of management. It explains some of the issues involved in turning management from a subject based on the assertions of gurus to one that reproduces the structure of concepts, hypothesis, and empirical tests, which is characteristic of natural sciences. The second part of the chapter provides evidence of how management theories that do not follow this structure are misleading.
