Back to school for business schools!

Recommended Posts


Is it wise to go to university, or is it better to teach?


Professor Russell Ackoff is an 88-year-old subversive.


He is also a business school professor emeritus, which makes what he has to say about education in general and business education in particular even more interesting.


In London to launch his new book on management flaws, or F-Laws, Professor Ackoff's central point was this: "We have to understand the whole before we can understand the parts - what matters is their interaction."


Easy to say, but hard to learn, even for the world's business schools.


More from this old professor, facinating ideas!
