Invited Reaction: Protecting the Birds' Feathers--Keeping Ideology out of MBA and HRD Programs
Bowman, Jeffry S.
Human Resource Development Review, v6 n2 p132-135 2007
In reference to Peter Kuchinke's manuscript, the author points out that current MBA programs suffer from a myriad of ills that are somehow detrimental to organizations and that there is a similar problem with human resource development (HRD) programs (hence the reference in the title to "birds of a feather"). In this article, he shares his observations on the manuscript.
