dc.description.abstractEffective organisational decision making in a highly competitive and fragmented market demands current and relevant insights. Given the global perspective in which the hotel sector operates, the need for such insight is intensified. This study seeks to establish a dialogue focussed on responding to this need by examining the relative alignment of hospitality research and industry priorities for the purpose of informing industry practices. First, a literature review of academic and trade publications in the hotel sector provide a baseline understanding of current discussion in their respective communities. Second, a series of in-depth interviews with managers of hotel properties were used to assess the perception of industry priorities on contemporary issues. Findings suggest that industry priorities are not consistent with the emphasis in the literature. Most notable, generational change was identified as of particular importance with respect to managing employees, while brand differentiation, or lack thereof, was highlighted as a concern when operating in a highly competitive market. To date, both issues appear to have received limited attention in the literature, representing a significant opportunity for future academic research.en_US
