Sometime in the midst of the last century, Chester Barnard, a retired telephone executive and author of the Functions of the Executive, imported the term "decision making" from the lexicon of public administration in to the business world. There it began to replace narrower descriptors such as "resource allocation" and "policy making". ... So Barnard -- and such later theorists as James March, Herbert Simon and Henry Mintzberg -- laid the foundation for the study of managerial decision making.

La vérité est que je me sens moi-même expat à Toronto. Originaire de Montréal, je suis arrivée dans cette ville il y a 22 ans.

MONTREAL – In a car, blind spots are the areas of the road that the rearview and side-view mirrors do not show. A driver must constantly be aware of them – and of the potentially deadly perils they can conceal. Businesses can have blind spots, too – and they can be equally costly, causing companies to overinvest in risky ventures or fail to take advantage of emerging opportunities. Successful leaders are careful to identify their company's blind spots and introduce mechanisms to ensure that no harm will come from them.

The questionnaire, written last year by a pair McGill University students in a social entrepreneuship class who had never before stepped food in Lac-Mégantic, asked the people there what kinds of businesses and services they felt the town was missing. More than 100 people filled out the survey in three days, and that's when Bernard D'Arche, 21, and Cécile Branco-Côté, 23, knew they were on to something.
