Why do women leave engineering?

Thu, 2016-06-16 14:53

Women who go to college intending to become engineers stay in the profession less often than men. Why is this? While multiple reasons have been offered in the past, a new study co-authored by an MIT sociologist develops a novel explanation: The negative group dynamics women tend to experience during team-based work projects makes the profession less appealing.

The Cult of the Leader

Thu, 2016-06-16 14:04

The claim of this recent book by Manchester Business School professor Christopher Bones is that too much of a focus on ‘leadership’ in business can be counterproductive and even dangerous for organizations. Seeing leaders as ‘special beings’ risks creating what Henry Mintzberg called ‘leadership apart’: leaders unconnected to their organizations, insulated from conflict, challenge, and debate; and unwitting creators of a culture of conformity and compliance rather than creativity and innovation.

Managing

Thu, 2016-06-16 13:59

Henry Mintzberg has been sharing his insights on management for almost 40 years. Often original and provocative, his booksThe Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning and Managers not MBAsare still widely cited, Mintzberg’s Managing brings together a lot of Mintzberg’s key ideas on the practice of management, as exemplified by Mintzberg’s observations of a day in working lives of 29 managers from a wide ride of organisations. For anyone wanting a concise and elegant statement of some of Mintzberg’s most important ideas, Managing is an excellent place to start.
