This “Introduction to the theoretical and philosophical basis of modern management” was developed, maintained and expanded by Professor Patrick Boylan between 1992 and 2004 to support teaching on the City University MA Courses in Arts Management, Museum and Gallery Management and Arts Management in Education in what was then the Department of Arts Policy and Management. From 1995 it was also made available on the Department’s resources website, formerly at, but soon became used much more widely by other institutions and courses to support their own students, particularly after it received a “Best of the Web” Award for Management Education in 1995. By request it was also it was also added to the learning resources website of the International Council of Museums’ International Committee for the Training of Personnel (ICOM-ICTOP).

Since the Arts Policy and Management website was finally discontinued following recent major changes in the University’s structure there have been a number of requests from other institutions and individuals who still find the original text of value, it is now being made publicly available again, this time in PDF format, through the University’s new institutional repository, City Research Online:
