Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannGBSN’s basic tenet is that better management is conducive to economic and social improvement, and that this is especially relevant to the developing world. I mentioned in previous newsletters that thanks to worldwide research by Nicholas Bloom of Stanford and his colleagues, evidence now exists that the quality of management in manufacturing is closely correlated to standards of living across countries. Not only that, their research found evidence of a causal relationship, with performance being driven by better management practices.

What has been undocumented until now is the impact, if any, of business schools on the quality of management, a subject about which, for whatever reason, there is a disheartening lack of empirical research.
