This edition of Global Focus looks closely at the human side of business. Highlights include: “Re-organising the political economy” – capitalism has not failed nor is it in retreat. It is just an idea. But, argues Malcolm McIntosh, it is an idea, which in its current form, is in real need of being re-thought. “Management’s Second Curve” – management has served us well., but with the ‘digital revolution’, we are entering a new era where the logic of the industrial-age organisation has lost its purchase. It is time to reinvent it, says Richard Straub. “Meet the ‘teachsultants’ and the ‘coachstructors’ – the future of executive education” – business schools face major challenges if they are to profit from the growth of executive education. One way, says Santiago Iniguez, is to produce faculty with diverse and hybrid skills. “Survival of the fittest: the new world order in education” – the education market has never been more buoyant. But that also means more change and new challenges.
