MBA Students and Design Thinking

I was given the privilege of sharing insights about management specifically regarding the innovation based organization gordongroup. The companies team of fifty dedicated communicators has just entered our 25th year of operations. The intent was to share with students who are underway engaged in research and study about the science of management points of view from a practitioners background.

The MBA students at the Telfer School of Management extended to me an engaging reception and through this encounter I shared 16 Constructs of my journey over the last quarter century.

Management has many facets today and technology has emerged as a central focus in much of what is being pronounced about ways to create innovation, leverage user patterns through algorithm and other binary code based references. I believe equal emphasis and sharpening of the lens is needed on the human side of management. People after all remain at the core of leading business enterprises.
