Greater attention to impact from research knowledge places considerable demands on academics to make connections and bridge gaps that have long separated the rigorous theoretical knowledge generation from the relevant practice and dynamic activities involved in knowledge use. Nevertheless this is a vital if the institutions employing academics are to deliver value to society. In reality theory and practice, rigour and relevance, thinking and doing for efficient and effective business management are different but to allow those differentiations between the nature of these apparently contradictory dualities, can make it hard to engineering bridges across the divides. This chapter argues for the need for more integrative onto-epistemological positions and methodological approaches that adopt a both-and view, combined with educational mechanisms to translate scholarship into action.
