McKinsey and the capacity of business for evil

chosen-path.org
Interesting tweet thread about McKinsey here: The claim is that McKinsey is being really smart and transforming itself. But I think that people come over all unnecessary when they talk about McKinsey — both as fanboys and as haters. This isn’t (as Clayton Christensen talked about when on payroll) transforming consulting; this is good old-fashioned … Continue reading McKinsey and the capacity of business for evil →

Twitter thread on healthcare

We *could* do medicine as if the point was patients’ health, but that would be a hassle. We’d have to coordinate with the other department, and you know what THEY are like. Obviously management would create a ton of extra paperwork for it, too.

A friend of mine has been trying to get a serious study done on the impact of *letting hospital patients sleep through the night*. For YEARS. Nobody’s ever thought to investigate, apparently.

‘What have PPE-ists ever done for us?’

forms.office.com

The panel discussion chaired by Jackie Ashley, renowned journalist and broadcaster, will discuss why so many PPE-ists end up in leadership positions and why the degree is described as a ‘passport to power’. We will also debate whether this is the degree that runs or ruins countries and institutions. This will be a wide-reaching discussion that will look beyond PPE to other degrees that have shaped many important people and moments in our lifetime. Joining Jackie Ashley on the panel will be Nikhil Rathi, Chief Executive of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority, Professor Will Davies, The Gabriele Taylor Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, and Aisha Washington, Director of Operations at Get Further and Venture Partner at Ark.
