New Case Study Discussion feature at BusinessWeek.com
post # 440 — September 28, 2007 — a Managing post
BusinessWeek.com has a newly launched â€œManaging Channelâ€, which replaces its popular Careers Channel. Among the terrific new features are interactive case studies which feature a story, a column, two videos, a reader poll and an opportunity for visitors to engage in substantive discussion of a real-life business case.
The very first case study zeroes in on a controversial management decision made by Procter & Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley, who skipped over 78 general managers with more seniority in making a key staff appointment without even consulting the rest of his management team. Lafley says â€œthere was almost a revoltâ€ over his decision. The case study includes an analysis by Noel Tichy, the leadership maven and University of Michigan professor.
