Tips: Searching for Management Topics

  • When searching for an article on a management topic, be as specific as possible. For example, search for the phrase "employee motivation" not just motivation. Use "business planning" or "strategic planning" not just planning
  • Consider combiining search terms such as " fast food" and employees or "management styles" and delegation
  • Quotation marks around phrases and company names is a good idea in both ABI and Lexis databases. For example, search for "talent management" or "General Electric" using quotes to ensure an exact match
  • Results may be reported by relevance. You may want to re-sort by date.
  • Use the "field" option to limit search to subject or company to help focus your results
