Martin Parker on Shutting Down the Business Schools

Podcast Recorded: May 2018
  • Learning & Behaviour
  • Strategy
  • CSR & Governance
Podcast Guest: Martin Parker

Martin Parker is a management professor who started out studying anthropology and sociology. This has given him a distinct viewpoint on management education that leads him to think that what is taught at business schools is a very narrow take on how organizations can be run, and that business schools ought to leverage their role as research institutions and educators to broaden the exploration of business processes, not just focus in more tightly on one aspect of it: market managerial capitalism. He talks here with Roddy Millar on how things could be changed.

Profit is probably the number one performance measure for most businesses. Businesses strive to achieve key profit targets on a regular basis to meet stakeholder expectations.

Many non-finance professionals believe that profit is a single point mathematical figure to which one arrives after lengthy recordings and computations. Others believe that profit is an unreliable figure, since accountants can find creative ways of manipulating it. The truth, however, lies somewhere in the middle.
