This paper argues the need for a new approach to the management of academic researchers and their research work. It is held that the requirement for a new management paradigm at the universities is accentuated by all the significant challenges in the knowledge production system (described as mode 2, triple helix, post-academic science etc.). The paper not only argues the need for a new management approach but also attempts to sketch an outline of an approach to micro-level management of academic researchers. This approach seeks to strike a balance between autonomy for the academics and organisational steering.
