Minter Dialogue with Roger Martin
Roger L. Martin is a trusted strategy advisor to the CEOs of companies worldwide including Procter & Gamble, Lego and Ford. In 2017, Roger was named the world’s #1 management thinker by Thinkers50 . He is a Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto where he served as Dean from 1998-2013 and was named global Dean of the Year by the leading business school website, Poets & Quants. He’s also an author and his latest book, ‘A New Way to Think, Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness‘ by HBR Press, is the culmination of a lifetime’s work in education and advising CEOs. In this conversation, we discuss the premise behind his new book, working with and transforming culture, dealing with received wisdom and best practices, his work with ex-P&G CEO AG Lafley, the gap-filling machine that is our brain and many more fascinating elements to make leadership more effective.
