California Management Review Launches Electronic Digest for Haas Community

California Management Review (CMR), the Haas School’s quarterly management research journal, has launched a new digital service for students, alumni, faculty, and staff to make the latest management research more accessible.

CMR Executive Digest condenses and summarizes the key points from articles in the latest issue of California Management Review into two to three pages. The digest will be emailed to students, alumni, faculty, and staff each quarter when a new issue of California Management Review is published.

“We received feedback from alumni and students that they don’t always have time to read an entire article or issue of California Management Review,” explains Haas Professor David Vogel, the journal’s editor-in-chief since 1982. “CMR Executive Digest is a way of making our articles more accessible to the Haas community.”

CMR Executive Digest also will include summaries of articles in the Berkeley-Haas Case Series, which recently expanded its audience through an agreement with Harvard Business Publishing.

The first edition of the CMR Executive Digest includes a summary of Haas Professor Jenny Chatman’s case article “Culture Change at Genentech.” The digest also includes summaries of articles on Japanese companies after the 2011 earthquake, supply chains, open innovation, and employee contributions to brand equity.
