Mon, 2015-02-16 16:29

Sometime in the midst of the last century, Chester Barnard, a retired telephone executive and author of the Functions of the Executive, imported the term "decision making" from the lexicon of public administration in to the business world. There it began to replace narrower descriptors such as "resource allocation" and "policy making". ...

Nathalie Prezeau - Marcher pour voir

Mon, 2015-02-16 16:28

La vérité est que je me sens moi-même expat à Toronto. Originaire de Montréal, je suis arrivée dans cette ville il y a 22 ans. Sans l'appui de nos familles, mon mari québécois et moi-même avons élevé une famille et compté sur nos nouvelles amitiés pour faire notre place.

Safe Driving for Fast Companies

Mon, 2015-02-16 16:21

Written by Professor Estelle Metayer

MONTREAL – In a car, blind spots are the areas of the road that the rearview and side-view mirrors do not show. A driver must constantly be aware of them – and of the potentially deadly perils they can conceal. Businesses can have blind spots, too – and they can be equally costly, causing companies to overinvest in risky ventures or fail to take advantage of emerging opportunities. Successful leaders are careful to identify their company's blind spots and introduce mechanisms to ensure that no harm will come from them.
