Chapter 48: Creating standards for responsible translation of management research for practitioners
The translation of academic management research into research highlights for a broad practitioner audience is proliferating in many business schools, professional associations, traditional newspapers and new media. Despite the importance of such translation for the field of management and more broadly for societal wellbeing, relatively little has been done to set any standards for what responsible translation should entail. Drawing from the medical translation literature, which is more advanced on this topic, we discuss several issues that are particularly pertinent to the translation of management research, such as the presence of multiple stakeholders, the accuracy of reporting research findings, and flexibility in drawing implications. We conclude by proposing a set of standards that responsible translation of management research should address.
