This Month: November

November brings with it brisk weather, but the impending cold is doing nothing to slow down activity around the Martin Prosperity Institute.

We begin the month by welcoming Institute Director Roger Martin back to the Rotman stage, this time with Jennifer Riel. The two co-authored the new book Creating Great Choices: A Leader’s Guide to Integrative Thinking, a sequel of sorts to Roger’s 2007 primer on integrative thinking, The Opposable Mind. Creating Great Choices gets its Canadian launch with both Roger and Jennifer in conversation with Bloomberg TV Canada’s Amanda Lang on November 2

After making a splash here in Toronto last month, the documentary short ProsperUS makes it way to the United Kingdom November 12 and then to Vienna on November 14. The film’s themes are explored in the latest episode of Shiftdisturbers, the MPI podcast.

While in England we will meet with MPI’s newest fellow, Mariana Mazzucato, director of the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose at University College London. MPI will work with Mariana as she rethinks how public value is created, nurtured, and evaluated. We look forward to learning from her and adding her talent to our work. Meanwhile, the Vienna screening coincides with our return to the ninth annual Global Drucker Forum, where Roger is speaking.

Thinkers50 is the world’s most reliable resource for identifying, ranking, and sharing the leading management ideas of our age. In the past, up to four MPI-affiliated thinkers have appeared on the list. We look forward to this year’s event on November 13.

As always please like, comment, and share any of the articles, podcasts, videos, or events that you’ve attended. And we’re always looking for better ways to share our work. Similarly, if there are things we should be reading or issues we should be following, let us know!

Thanks for checking in. Until next month…
