The biggest automaker in the world admits it screwed up. Rigging emissions tests on its diesel cars will cost Volkswagen billions. But what's happened to car owners' trust?
Our guest is Henry Mintzberg, a Cleghorn professor of management studies at McGill University and author of Rebalancing Society: Radical Renewal Beyond, Left, Right, and Center. He argues that what happened at Volkswagen was not a scandal, but a part of a pattern or syndrome.
You’re late getting out the door and your six-year-old isn’t co-operating. You know it isn’t the best parental decision you’ve ever made but you offer him a treat if he agrees to obediently put on his shoes and get into the car. What’s the harm in that?
A study co-authored by Laurette Dubé of McGill University’s Desautel Faculty of Management suggests there could be long-term consequences to these types of actions, especially if they become a regular routine.

‘What was Volkswagen thinking?’ This question makes a big assumption: that the Volkswagen people were thinking about anything beyond their greed. About decency, about our environment, about their progeny.
Okay, so you won’t be buying a Volkswagen. A Chevrolet? Watch out for the ignition. Or how about a Toyota? Just duck as the airbag comes your way. Do you, by any chance, see a pattern? Have webeen thinking?
It’s hard to hear anything over the chirping. Cardboard boxes filled with egg cartons and sheets of plastic buzz with thousands of young-adult crickets calling out to one another to mate.
... Gabriel Mott, the chief operating officer of Aspire Food Group, yells above the noise and points inside one of the boxes. “You see the one with the wings?” he asks. “That’s a female. They get their wings at their final stage.”
À l'heure où Peter Todd prend la tête de HEC, avec un excellent track-record financier sur son précédent poste à McGill, c'est l'occasion de faire un point sur la présence de HEC sur LinkedIn, réseau social où sont présents la plupart des dirigeants internationaux.
