Want to Charge More? Then Explain What You Do More Clearly

Mon, 2013-12-02 10:52

What happens when people don’t understand the work you do? Worse still, what happens when your job relies on the input (financial and otherwise) of the public and clients who incorrectly think they understand the nature of your work?
Research I conducted in conjunction with researchers at a number of universities analysed just this, and we found that in complex professions such as the legal, nursing, accountancy and architecture sectors, both pay and performance can suffer when clients don’t fully understand a profession.

Ahead of the Curve: Recent International Focus in Business Schools Allows Grads to Tackle CETA Head On

Mon, 2013-12-02 09:57

This time, they’re ahead of the curve.

When major events rock the business world, business schools often review their curriculum to see how, if at all, they can adapt to the changes taking place in the private sector.

... So says Francesca Carrieri, professor of finance at McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management, who believes the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), will be a positive game-changer for Canadian business, and is unlikely to have the same number of vocal detractors NAFTA did.
