Management Education's Unanswered Questions How has management education evolved, and where is it going? This question is of crucial importance for society, says HBS professor Rakesh Khurana. Business leaders are admired yet often distrusted, and the idea of management as a profession is similarly on shaky ground—as it has been for more than 100 years. The situation may be due in large part to the role of university-based business education from the founding of the Wharton School in 1881 and continuing right up to the present. According to Khurana, the schools first emphasized that managers should carry out their work in ways beneficial for society.
by Nicholas Bloom, Rebecca Homkes, Raffaella Sadun, and John Van Reenen | 3:30 PM June 13, 2011 After a decade of painstaking research, we have concluded that American firms are on average the best managed in the world. This is not what we — a group of European researchers — expected to find. But while Americans are bad at football (or soccer, as it’s known as locally), they are the Brazilians of Management.

Employees value feedback and recognition more than any other attributes in their boss, according to a new survey, with Generation Y workers the most needing of praise. Talent management company SHL recently surveyed 1,299 Australians about what they view as the most important characteristics in a boss. The survey reveals employees value their bosses’ ability to give good feedback and recognition more than any other attributes. This contrasts with results of the same survey in 2010, which found that the most important characteristics in a boss were honesty and trustworthiness. SHL national director Samantha Christopher says employee expectations have changed dramatically in the space of a year, partly due to easing concerns about the global financial crisis.

Kordaris out at Humanscale by ROB KIRKBRIDE George Kordaris was tapped last fall as the company's global director of research and design, but he never fit into the corporate structure at Humanscale headquarters in New York. Office on Wheels by ROB KIRKBRIDE The XchangE concept combines two concepts: the future of autonomous driving and what that free time will allow us to accomplish in our vehicles as they drive themselves. In Rinspeed's world, that means a truly mobile office and living room on wheels.
