What I care about now...
We management professors have the responsibility to learn and teach about the big picture of energy and climate change for the US and the world...to help ourselves and our students to understand both the scientific and the organizational environment for energy and policy, and to develop a new generation of leaders who are sustainability-literate. I am teaching global sustainability using a co-learning approach in Northeastern's graduate, undergraduate, and online management programs.
BUILDING COMMUNITY FOR SCHOLAR-TEACHERS
I am honored to serve as president of the OBTS Teaching Society for Management Educators, which encourages wonderfully active engagement from management educators in all career stages and across all disciplines. Learn more at obts.org.
UNDERSTANDING THE ORGANIZATIONAL GRAY SECTOR
I have been writing about alternative organizations like quangos and hybrids for many years. Today they are more important in the US than ever before...from Fannie Mae to the Massachusetts Port Authority to the new (and in my view problematic) benefit corporations created in several states...How does the public hold organizations in the gray sector accountable? How do these organizations impact our democratic system of government?
My recent publications in this area are:
(March, 2012, Online First) Assessing the Accountability of the Benefit
Corporation: Will This New Gray Sector Organization Enhance
Corporate Social Responsibility? The Journal of Business
(2011). Organizational Responsiveness to the Sustainability
Paradigm: A Comparison of Government Departments, Government
Sponsored Enterprises, and Private Firms. International Journal
of Business Insights and Transformation, 3(3), 8-15.
(2010). Assessing the accountability of government-
sponsored enterprises and quangos. The Journal of Business Ethics,
(2004). Take Back the Sky: Protecting Communities in the Path of
Aviation Expansion. (San Francisco: Sierra Club Books)
