The Ivory Tower and the Boardroom: The University as an Organizational Laboratory


Looking at York University as a corporation and reviewing some of its accomplishments. Problems with underfunding and its consequences, particularly with regard to students. How York's experience may reveal something about the future of the business corporation. How business might become more university-like. Some examples of how that might work. An exploration of similarities and differences between universities and the business community. How each meets the bottom line. Budget and economic details of running York University. How York has met budgetary challenges, and the nature of the community. Worker empowerment, decentralized decision-making, commitment to the values of the organization, constant questioning and change, and a strong community and culture: assets and liabilities. Talking about the present, looking at the future.
