From Apprenticeship To Mastership

Issue 27

As Jean-François Manzoni, the President of IMD, notes in his interview in this issue “continuous learning throughout your life is the fundamental pillar of effectiveness in the world we live in”. This recurring theme, that to survive let alone prosper in today’s high-speed world requires an open and enquiring mind that is forever being trained and retrained, is really the central key to unlocking the productivity challenge that so many economies are currently facing.

The issue also includes a guide to the Apprenticeship Levy, Andrew Crisp discusses how business schools can create distinct identities to help make them stand out in a sometimes quite homogenous crowd and Christian Stadler of Warwick Business School shares his research comparing successful well-established businesses and their start-up competitors – and discovering three valuable and perhaps unexpected commonalities.
