Trump : à défaut de pouvoir voter, nous pouvons agir

Ecrit par Henry Mintzberg 

Nous, au Canada, aux côtés d'autres personnes du monde entier, n'avons pas pu voter aux dernières élections américaines. Toutefois, nous devrons vraisemblablement en souffrir les conséquences à l'échelle internationale.

The Rest Of The World Couldn't Vote, But We Can Act

We in Canada, along with many other people around the world, did not get to vote in the recent American election -- yet we are meant to suffer the international consequences of it. Shall we sit back, as usual, and watch events unfold, including the possibly catastrophic effects of climate change left unchecked?

Henry Mintzberg is Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University in Montreal and the author of Rebalancing Society... radical renewal beyond left, right and centre.

« Les avocats ont un cerveau différent »

...Le fait est que ça ne suffit pas de connaître seulement la loi : il faut avoir des connaissances en gestion, en relations interpersonnelles, mais les Facs de droit continuent d’enseigner ce qui était utile voici 25 ans. Il faut que ça change. Le spécialiste de la gestion de l’Université McGill, Harry Mintzberg, l’a écrit : le monde a besoin de gestionnaires, pas de détenteurs de MBA. C’est la même chose en droit : il faut des avocats bien formés, pas seulement des juristes.

Musings on management

Written by Henry Mintzberg 

Management is a curious phenomenon. It is generously paid, enormously influential, and significantly devoid of common sense.

At least, the hype about management lacks common sense, as does too much of the practice. I should really say im-practice, because the problems grow out of the disconnection between management and the managed.

Kevin O’Leary is Wrong! It is NOT All About The Money!

I once went to see Kevin O’Leary at a Fireside Chat at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, just to experience him in a more intimate situation.

I hate war and violence and we do not need more of that in our world.

...She also proposed that the Future Healthcare Committee consult with some of the experts who advocated for the proposals outlined, such as Dr Henry Mintzberg of McGill University, senior health economist Robert Yates of Chatham House, and Prof Michael West of the King’s Fund.
