084 – Three reasons management is broken (but can be fixed)

080 – Adventures in Capitalism

10/6/2017
More
Consider how an upbeat story about a business (Shake Shack) was distorted on social media, eliciting some negative responses in which people question the underlying motivation of management. There seems to be a dominant, and rather negative narrative that plays in the back of people’s minds about capitalism, providing a context in which to interpret daily events. Clearly, capitalism is not working for everyone. … Continue reading 080 – Adventures in Capitalism →

8/4/2017
More
In his 1999 book, Management Challenges for the 21st Century, Peter Drucker explored the assumptions that pertain to the study of management.
