What is This Management?: Essays on Corporate Governance and Management Education

Thomas Pounds (Editor)
Publication date: March 7, 2023

Dean Bill Pounds was for many MIT Sloan students their favorite, most memorable teacher. In this collection of short essays on management and corporate governance, he shares practical, down-to-earth wisdom and insight on topics rarely touched on in the typical MBA curriculum, gleaned from his decades of experience across a wide variety of boards.

CEOs, corporate directors, and anyone interested in how organizations function and perform in the mysterious realm beyond the executive suite will find these timeless ideas a thought-provoking and sometimes irreverent complement to more traditional academic and legal treatments of these important subjects.
