The twist here is simple: Instead of focusing on the nitty-gritty taught in
business school—how to do a regression analysis, for example—why not
have Mike Milken talk about how finance is really about “the art and science
of sustaining growth, building wealth and creating jobs.” And instead of slogging
through books like Reengineering the Corporation, why not have Jim Champy, one
of the co-authors of the concept, point out what the theory means in today’s
workplace. All the standard B-school issues—leadership, marketing, human
resources, innovation, strategy and communication—are addressed. You won’t
learn how to do a regression analysis, but you’ll learn to sound like you know.
