The Wisdom of Fireflies
Posted by kenhoward on July 25, 2008
Business sociology can be very interesting – the dynamics of departments, groups, teams, or other blobs of people working together toward a common goal. In business school they called this organizational behavior, but I think organizational sociology sounds much cooler.
Incidentally, the Org Behavior question was the only one I missed on the comprehensive final I took when I got my MBA, but I’m a lot wiser in they ways of how groups operate now. I’d probably still fail that exam question, though, because memorizing categories and lists of labels from theorists hasn’t been particularly useful to me in the real world.
Afterwards, you can thank me for turning you on to Radiolab. Then you can join me in complaining that they only put out 5 new episodes per season.
