MGTECON 591: Global Management Research

This course will overview a rapidly growing body of research into management practices. A large management practice project involving Accenture, Cambridge, Harvard, MIT, the London School of Economics, McKinsey, Stanford and the World Bank has been collecting data on management across firms and countries since the early 2000s (see www.worldmanagementsurvey.com). This project evaluated about 20,000 organizations in manufacturing, retail, healthcare and education across North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australasia, providing global insight into the basic management practices around monitoring, targets and talent management that firms adopt around the world. We will examine the link between management and performance, and the reasons for differences in management across firms, industries and countries. This will be supplemented with the results from more recent research with national statistical offices (see www.managementresearch.com) plus work with Accenture and the World Bank in India on change management interventions in a developing country context. The course will focus on making students familiar with: (A) modern management research and (B) a management evaluation scoring too for the rapid evaluation of large groups of firms. This would be well suited for students potentially interested in doing further research after the MBA, those that want a more academic course, and people interested in tools for evaluating management practices in large samples of companies.
