Management Reading
Posted by Fred Tung

I just found this interesting resource in the Economist:  a regular feature called "What's in the Journals."  It's a monthly summary of articles in business journals, sort of a quick fix on management and business articles.  Among the snippets for April:  the growing popularity of business podcasting; a summary of an academic paper entititled "Does CEO Charisma Matter?"; and a blurb on a McKinsey paper applying behavioral economics (specifically overoptimism) to strategic decisionmaking in business.  A quote from this latter:  "Almost all of us believe ourselves to be in the top 20% of the population when it comes to driving, pleasing a partner, or managing a business."  Uh, you mean, I'm not . . .?
