Management Lessons from Game of Thrones: The Quiz!

The wonderful people at my university have made up a “Which Game of Thrones Leader Are You?” quiz to promote my book Management Lessons in Game of Thrones! Go on, take it– we don’t send any data back to evil corporations! 

In case you’re wondering, I got Tyrion.

Management Lessons From Game of Thrones: The Campaign

My book Management Lessons from Game of Thrones is out now (click the title for purchase links). And it needs your help!

Specifically, I need your help to have the wackiest impact case study in the history of the business school.

For those of you who aren’t in British academia: an impact case study is a portfolio of items which demonstrate that some part of a professor’s research has had a significant impact on some part of wider society.

And I think Management Lessons from Game of Thrones has serious potential to have an impact on some part of wider society, so:

Buy it! Read it! Use it in your Introduction to Management courses! But more importantly, tell me, and tell the world! Review it! Let me know which courses and where!

If you’re a reviewer for a blog or a podcast or a magazine, DM me about review copies! I’m @drfionamoore on all major social media.

Whatever you do—let’s make sure Management Lessons from Game of Thrones gets seen!

Not sure you want to buy it? Here’s a taste.

Unfortunately Bookshop.org doesn’t seem to have it, so if you want to buy direct from your local bookshop (and please do) you’ll have to communicate with them directly: the ISBN is 978 1 83910 528 9.

Not sure if you want to buy it or not? Here’s a sample chapter to whet your appetite.

Not that sort of appetite.

Aim for the stars…

…But if NASA won’t take you there, try Elon Musk.

If Elon Musk won’t take you, the Russian space programme has been quietly doing the job for decades, so try them.

And if even they won’t take you– then consider buying time on a satellite.
