Welcome to Global Voice magazine #21 – Out of the Tin Can
This spring issue of the Council on Business & Society’s quarterly magazine contains 96 pages of research and opinion-based articles featured in two sections – Business, Society and Leadership & Management.
We’re delighted to include a special double-page dedicated to two new CoBS Deans – Dean Lee Newman and Dean Yu Sakasume – having respectively taken up their functions at leading member institutions IE Business School, Spain, and Keio Business School, Japan.
This issue’s Editorial also features a spotlight on the unique value case studies bring to the learning experience, co-authored by Richard McCracken, Director of The Case Centre, the world’s leading independent home of the case method, and Prof. Adrian Zicari of the Council on Business & Society.
A wry and playful glance at business buzz words – and maybe even the state of our hectic modern society – is included in our double-page cartoon penned by Tom Gamble of the CoBS and illustrated by Matthieu Anziani of ESSEC Business School. And, as usual, hats off to the superb Global Voice graphic design by CoBS Head of Design Mélissa Guillou.
Faculty, practitioner and student articles provide the bread and butter of this issue, with topics covering big data and customer value, how to manage remote working, designing mentorship programmes, TechForGood, greening up supply chains with circular economy strategy, non-financial social and environmental disclosure, and a spotlight on smart cities in Japan among others.
And lastly, you may ask why this issue carries the subtitle Out of the Tin Can? The temptation is to say that it’s up to you to interpret it – for there are many interpretations possible! Some of these might point to the David Bowie classic, Space Oddity, and the fact that, at last, many of us in our societies are once again able to step out of the confinement imposed by the pandemic to breath freely again. Another interpretation, hand in hand with the snappy front cover image, might refer to Andy Warhol’s iconic pop art, consumerism or simply the tastiness of the contents the tin cans hold – a little like the insights in this magazine, if I dare say! And lastly, the shades of green to the cans give the message that our ‘consuming society’ might well contain a new – and more responsible, sustainable – taste to it.
In any case, we hope you download this Global Voice #21 issue, open it up and consume its insights with immoderation!
Enjoy your reading!
