Do you run for cure? How about running for cause.

Thu, 2016-07-28 11:38

You probably know people who have had some sort of cancer. You also know many more who will be getting these diseases—you just don’t know who they are. So when you “Run for Cancer”, the money likely goes for those people who have the disease, to find a cure, rather than to the investigation of cause, so that many more people needn’t get the disease in the first place. We certainly need to celebrate concern for the ill, but shouldn’t we show equivalent concern for the healthy, so that they don’t get ill? Is not an ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure?

Harvard Business School’s bricks-and-clicks spree

Mon, 2016-07-25 11:53

As dean of Harvard Business School, part of Nitin Nohria’s job is to mythologise its vast campus. The inauguration last month of yet another new building offered a perfect marketing opportunity.

Not all are convinced that it equates to real experience, however. Henry Mintzberg, a McGill University management professor, is a long-time critic of MBAs and the case method, which he sees as too theoretical. He characterises the Field innovation as “young know-nothings shooting off their mouths about things they don’t understand”.

Combining leadership skill and management capability

Thu, 2016-07-14 09:38

Chris Lake, head of professional development at the NHS Leadership Academy, explores why leadership and management are equally important – and why they can’t work in isolation.

Tue, 2016-07-12 10:32

Para além de seu carisma e das posições progressistas em temas delicados para a Igreja Católica, é possível que o Papa Francisco fique na história por outro legado, mais discreto e incomum: a arrumação de uma enorme e complexa casa chamada Vaticano. Segundo a imprensa, Jorge Mario Bergoglio contratou três multinacionais de consultoria para examinar com lupa as finanças da Igreja, bem como trouxe profissionais de mercado para ocupar posições gerenciais, em substituição a religiosos amadores.
