Research in business and management (RRBM) has been criticized heavily for its use of poor science and its lack of relevance to policy and practice. This presentation will illustrate the causes of this demise and suggest solutions. The latter will depend on multiple global actors from journal editors to accreditation agencies. Since the movement for RRBM was started in 2015, it has over a 1000 signatories of highly regarded academics who are determined to transform the sector.
