This Perspectives paper draws attention to what I would call ‘industry‐focused research’ as an approach in management research that I believe can potentially contribute to the improvement of non‐academic impact of the research. Industry‐focused research refers to a type of studies in management that are based on an in‐depth understanding of particular industry environments and that take account of the contextual details of the industries under investigation. Given that the industrial context in different locations tends to vary, industry‐focused research can also contribute to the contextualization of management research in the Asia Pacific region.
