I'll report more thoroughly later, but I heartily recommend "The Buck Starts (and Stops) at Business School," by Joel Podolny, in the current (June) Harvard Business Review. Sample: "The degree of contrition at business schools seems small compared with the magnitude of the offense."
As a vociferous 30-year critic of the b-schools, almost every word was music to my ears. Podolny and I share views at the 99.999% level.
[NB: In the same HBR, check out "Relentless Idealism for Tough Times," a terrific interview with Chez Panisse founder (1971) Alice Waters. Among other things, Waters insists that her chefs spend FIFTY PERCENT of their time away from their kitchen learning new stuff!!.]
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
