Media Centre

Our policy, thought leadership and communications work aims to shape the policy debate and public conversation about management and leadership in the UK.

By influencing government, employers, media and other key stakeholders with practical, benefit-driven research, we help to create better led and managed organisations.

Influencing Management Practice

CMI carries out a wide range of research to help managers understand how – and what they can do – to improve performance and productivity. We use this research alongside our knowledge of the political and economic context to make practical policy recommendations that policymakers or business leaders can apply straight away. We promote this work through the media to ensure that managers up and down the country can see our research and are aware of the impact we’re having.

Our best insight comes from our engagement with the CMI community. Our members come from across all sectors and industries, and all ages - from those taking their first step onto the management ladder, to those who have scaled it right to the top. It is this close relationship which ensures our thought leadership remains practical and passionate.
