The Integrative Thinker

A Vision of the High-Value Decision Maker in Postmodern High Capitalism

(p.25) 1 The Integrative Thinker
The Future of the MBA

Mihnea C. Moldoveanu

Roger L. Martin

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights and argues for a particular conception of the future high-value decision maker, embodying skills and characteristics that make him or her unique from the prototypes for managerial success on which current versions of the MBA curriculum and design philosophy rest. It demonstrates why this high-value decision maker of the future will be in great demand and short supply given current trends in educational and selection technologies and programs. It also shows how the problems that the high-value decision maker must solve are likely the result of the current social and cultural context of business organizations.

Keywords:   high-value decision maker, MBA curriculum, educational programs, social context, cultural context, business organizations
