Henry Mintzberg, one of the most famous management ‘gurus’ (The Economist), visited the Schulich School of Business last Saturday (11/23/13). He shared with faculty, PhD students and instructors some of his experiences in crafting his own groundbreaking research contribution. Mintzberg, whose work is a staple on MBAs, nonetheless has never joined the mainstream ideologies in management. Mintzberg, who is still active as a Professor at McGill University in Montreal has always been a contrarian – be it in debunking the myths around managerial efficiency, questioning the effectiveness of MBA education or, more recently, fleshing out a new layout for business-government-civil society interactions. Professor Mintzberg gave us an inspiring tour de force through his research approach and thinking.
