a. A “State of the Practice” edition. This edition would have about 12 pieces (around 3000 words each), typically written by well-known scientist-practitioners. Each peer-reviewed piece would discuss best practices in a particularpractice area that are extremely relevant in today’s business world (e.g., Succession Planning; High Potential Identification).

This would hopefully promote our science/practice ideals and further support the notion of evidence based management.
