Open Lecture: Prescott family lecture series - Leadership and management: an integrated approach

08/7/2018 06:00 pm 08/7/2018 08:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Open Lecture: Prescott family lecture series - Leadership and management: an integrated approach

Monash Business School is delighted to invite you to attend the third annual Prescott Family Lecture Series, 'Leadership and Management: An Integrated Approach’, on Tuesday, 7 August, 2018.

In this event, supported by the Prescott Family Foundation, Professor Emeritus David Lewin from the UCLA Anderson School of Management will present a horizontally integrated view of leadership and management that has been used successfully by some of the world’s largest companies.

Professor Lewin argues that in the world of Big Data, the common functional specialties in companies - such as marketing, finance, human resources, operations, and strategy - and the common tools used by companies - such as microeconomics, statistics, accounting, and behavioural science – have become increasingly specialised and isolated from each other.

But by grappling with this complexity within their own organisational cultures, companies can rethink their approach to business strategy, organisation development and talent acquisition to enhance financial performance and build a strong “bench” of successors to senior executive positions.

Guest speaker:Professor David Lewin Professor David Lewin
