At a one-day conference I attended today called ‘Internationalizing the Curriculum‘, I ran into the ever lovely Paul Kleiman from the HEA and he told me about a series of reports that IBM conduct each year called the ‘C-Suite Studies’. Basically, they interview something like 1,700 chief executives in 60-70 countries about what the major issues are of the year and then produce a report about it. It sounds like either totally dry, boring, rubbish or absolutely fascinating insights. I am on the fence about it at the moment, because I’ve only just started reading the first in the series…but my instinct so far is that there might be some really interesting insights in these bad boys. If you are interested, you can download them from the IBM website.
