As an invited guest of the Responsible Corporate Governance Section of the Hungarian Economic Association, Dr. John Lipinski, Professor of Management at Indiana University of Pennsylvania will present on the University of Pittburgh’s “Business of Humanity” project on 18th October, 2017, 11.00 am at the Kochmeister Hall of the Budapest Stock Exchange (7 Szabadság square, distr. 5., Budapest, Platina tower, 4th Floor).
The Business of Humanity Project was founded at the University of Pittsburgh by John Camillus, Bopaya Bidanda, and John Wallace. It seeks to improve strategic decision making in organizations. There are three basic motivations to the project:
1) The short and long term economic and strategic advantages of humaneness in managerial decision making
2) The imperative of recognizing “human kind” in innovating strategy
3) The inadequate and potential dysfunctionality of accounting profits as a guide
Many of the problems in the world are “wicked problems” with no easy answer. These types of problems are so complex because they involve an interconnected network of stakeholders facing different challenges and different interests. As such, finding solutions that please all stakeholders is difficult. The Business of Humanity Project is striving to educate leaders on techniques to help alleviate such situations and move toward a positive solution.
Dr. John Lipinski earned his PhD in Business Administration from the Katz School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh and his MBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Prior to entering academia, Dr. Lipinski held managerial positions with Procter & Gamble, Warner Lambert, and PNC Bank. He is currently a Professor of Management at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
We ask our members who are intrested in participating the lecture to register at the firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address before 17th October.
