John Lewis, (almost) the inside story

I mentioned a few weeks back the new study of the employee-owned John Lewis Partnership, A Better Way of Doing Business?, which has been published recently.  The book is written by two Open University academics Graeme Salaman and John Storey, and it’s a fascinating read. I’d recommend it to anyone who has an interest in alternative business models (including co-operatives), and in the implications that these models can have on management, business strategy, accountability, corporate governance and employment practices.

I’ve written a review for Co-operative News which I imagine will be in their next print edition. In the meantime, CN has posted the review online.  You’ll find it here.
