Featured MOT program: SFU

I’m going to try to feature an MOT program on our web site every month. Here is the first one: The MOT MBA at Simon Fraser University (my home institution, so why not?)

The MBA in Management of Technology (MOT) is designed for those wishing to transition from scientific or technical roles or, as managers, signal their readiness for additional responsibilities. The MOT MBA is a dynamic mix of solid academic theory complemented by practical experience designed to mirror the challenging situations facing the technology sector.

French IAMOT blogger on China

If you read French you may be interested in this new post by Dominique Jolly, order an IAMOT member from France. He has a link to his blog, hospital as well.

Chers amis,

Vous savez tous l’intérêt que j’ai pour la Chine et l’étonnement qui me frappe à chaque voyage.  J’ai beaucoup lu sur le pays. Je pense notamment aux excellentes publications d’économistes comme Françoise Lemoine ou de sociologues réputés comme Jean-Luc Domenach.  J’ai aussi vu avec intérêt cette littérature de micro-management destinée aux jeunes managers occidentaux mutés en Chine et devant soudainement encadrer des équipes locales.  Il manquait entre ces deux extrêmes un ouvrage sur la stratégie des entreprises en Chine.  Je me suis donc attelé à la tâche.  Et j’ai aujourd’hui le plaisir de vous annoncer la sortie en librairie de mon ouvrage « Ces entreprises qui font la Chine » édité par Eyrolles / Editions d’Organisation.  Pour plus d’information, suivez ce lien :

http://dominiquejolly.wordpress.com/

L’ouvrage peut être commandé facilement via Amazon ou Eyrolles (le lien est sur mon blog).

Je reviens d’un séjour à Shanghai et à Suzhou (où nous avons depuis trois ans un campus).  J’ai présenté le livre à la CCIFC de Shanghai et à notre réseau d’anciens. Il a été très bien reçu.

Cordialement, au plaisir d’un prochain contact.
