Abstract

: A currently emerging viewpoint is that today's management practices no longer add value to organisations. The focus of this article is to conduct a systematic review of the scholarly literature on management practices that could be related to employee engagement.


: This study searched for evidence in support of the notion of a management value chain, and enabling management practices within each value chain component that could relate to employee engagement.
: An alternative management value chain model could contribute towards a better understanding of which management practices may potentially impact employee engagement.
: This is a non-empirical (theoretical) study, based on a systematic, in-depth literature review to identify the key management components and enabling practices within this proposed management value chain. Scholarly research databases were sourced for relevant peer reviewed research conducted since 1990, not excluding important contributions prior to 1990. The literature was systematically searched, selected, studied, and contextualized within this study.
: Support was found for the notion of a management value chain, for enabling management practices within each proposed management value chain component, and it was also established these management practices indeed have an impact on employee engagement.
: The possibility that management work can be presented as a generic management value chain allows managers to approach engaging management practices more systematically.
: This study highlights the importance of some management practices that have never been seen as part of management work.
