The Tavistock Blog

February 28, 2008

The Director of the Tavistock Institute in London is blogging. My colleague Phil Swann was a journalist in a previous life so expect great things from Swann’s Way. So far he’s talking about electing mayors (in London and New York); the value of storytelling in organisations; the importance of organisational dynamics in the recent loss of financial records of 25 million citizens in the UK and the absence of social science representation at the recent Times Higher Education Supplement’s awards ceremony.

But overall social science had a very low profile. I cannot decide whether that is because of a mature aversion to Grosvenor House, a lack of pride, a bias among the judges, or because it didn’t deserve any prizes.

I’m looking forward to reading more over at Swann’s Way.
