News & Opinion: Tuesday Links

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:24 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Here are some miscellaneous things we have ran across last week that you might be interested in.
  • Today's 6 Worst Business Books (Chief Executive) - I am not a big fan of these kinds of articles. We have always believed that people want to know what to read, not what not to read.
  • World In A Box (The Economist) - They review The Box. Author Marc Levinson writes a great history of the ocean cargo container and how it has changed global trade. This was one of Jack's picks for March.
  • How To Manage In An Unpredictable World ( - Dr. Don Sull presented an online course for the site. I think this is way cool. There are five short video segment (it was presented over a week's time) and extensive lecture notes. I think they are onto something.
