Management Education's Unanswered Questions

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. This theme was later replaced by preference for disciplinary knowledge, and finally by a market logic that regards business education as a marketable commodity rather than a professional education. It has been an invisible transformation, but society and business schools themselves must grapple with it.

Khurana has witnessed the transformation from both sides of the aisle. Science.

Feedback And Recognition Most Valued In Bosses: SHL Survey - Managing people

Talent management company SHL recently surveyed 1,299 Australians about what they view as the most important characteristics in a boss.

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.

“We are now back to [the employee mindset of] ‘what can the organisation do for me?’ “They want to know really clearly what is expected of them and whether they are achieving it or not,” Christopher says. Give timely praise. Managing tomorrow's people: Downloads. NEW!
