Mintzberg On Why You Need To View A Company As 'A Community Of Human Beings'

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:18

“I’m a human being, not a human resource”. Is something I have heard my colleague Henry Mintzberg say a number of times. It really seems to resonate with people. Recently Henry published on his website an e-pamphlet called Rebalancing Society. In it he argues that society rests on three key pillars: government, business and what he calls plural society. Henry believes that business today in the West has too much power and we need more of the plural society.

Reflections from South Korea

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:15

Recently, I visited South Korea and Mongolia along with a group of McGill University undergraduates and alumni. This trip was part of the Hot Cities of the World Tour organized by Professor Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. Frankly, South Korea was an incredible place to visit; especially from an economic perspective. South Korea is the world's 12th largest economy, as well as a global leader in the manufacture of automobiles and electronics. Despite these successes however, South Korea's economy does face key issues.

Canada’s Bensadoun Becomes Billionaire Selling Aldo Shoes

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:14

Tanya Graber, a resident of Switzerland, researched fashion retailer Aldo on the Internet before her vacation to New York City.

“We saw these handbags and we wanted to buy these handbags,” Graber said, gesturing to the camel-colored leather model on the checkout counter at the company’s store on Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

... The retailer has a value of $1.7 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, making Aldo’s executive chairman, Aldo Bensadoun (BCom'64, LLD'12), a billionaire.
