It is an honour and pleasure to guest-edit this special issue of the EMJ. We are particularly pleased to say that we were overwhelmed by the response to our initial call for papers: thirty eight authors from around the globe had submitted interesting thought-pieces, in-depth case studies, and formal academic articles for inclusion in what we hoped would fill one special issue, and also shed more light on three important key challenges (discussed below). After reviewing the submitted papers, however, we found we were wrong on both counts. First, there were more high-quality papers than we could do justice to in a single special Management Focus. Second, the papers raised more questions than answers in terms of our three key challenges. To deal with these pleasurable problems, EMJ’s editor-in-chief Paul Stonham thankfully agreed to embark on a second special Management Focus to appear in the future.
