Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For me this is particularly interesting, given that organizational culture is one of the topics I often discuss in my university seminars.  In addition, just last month we celebrated IBM’s Centennial , and along with the many who have written articles on the subject, I kept asking myself: “why is IBM still alive and thriving after so long?”.

Why Do Firms Exist?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Over the years, I have given quite a few seminars on the subject, including a graduate course in MIT in the Fall of 2010.  I have also written a number of entries on services in this blog.
