re: Here Comes Corporate Brain Drain
History is like a pendulum, and that pendulum has a nasty record of exacting revenge on those who abuse their positions of power. For the last few decades American Management thinking has been that the employee is but a resource, to be used up, sacrificed and discarded on the altar of high finance and the spreadsheet.
Unfortunately for Harvard, the many MBAs and the Fortune 500, America is leading the way to a new age of collaboration and craftsmanship. In the future, management many find itself powerless to these forces.
Brain Drain? There is no brain drain where it's fun and there is a focus on the value of people and community-like responsibility, not where greed, control of people's lives, extraction of value through short term thinking, cronyism and class warfare run rampant. Politics aside, "Spreadsheet Manager" and "Hedge Fund CEO" will soon become marks of Shame, much like a Scarlett Letter for a business leader.
Portland is the sign of the future, not Harvard, the Ivy League and Washington, DC.
American business leadership, Wall Street and Fortune 500 investors are about to get what they deserve.....to be ignored and thrust onto the heap of discarded history.
