    What will it take to Educate the World - Sanjaya Lall Visiting Professor Distinguished Panel Lecture 2018

    What will it take to Educate the World - Sanjaya Lall Visiting Professor Distinguished Panel Lecture 2018

    Many developing countries suffer from poorly performing educational systems that fail to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate productively in the modern economy. How can educational outcomes be improved? To address this question, Esther Duflo draws on path-breaking recent research on school learning techniques in rural India that bridges economics with disciplines such as psychology and cognitive science. Panellists Sir Richard Peto, one of the world’s most influential health statisticians and an expert on large RCTs, and Rachel Glennester, chief economist of DFID, analyse and comment on the research drawing on their own knowledge and experience of a variety of related policy interventions.

    Process thinking in four modes

    Process thinking in four modes

    Professor Ann Langley, Chair in Strategic Management in Pluralistic Settings, HEC Montréal discusses her research work. Process thinkers and scholars understand organizing and managing in terms of movement, activity and flow rather than in terms of success factors, best practices and static relationships between inputs and outcomes: in other words, they are interested in “how” questions, rather than “what” questions, and they take time and temporality to be central. However, there are a variety of ways of considering what a process perspective might mean, each involving different assumptions and each demanding different approaches to research and intervention. In this lecture, the speaker will examine four different modes of thinking about process (as development; as narrative; as activity; and as withness) and consider their implications for managing and researching organizations.
