Think: Cranfield
Think: Cranfield is the online newsletter of Cranfield School of Management. It features the latest in management thinking and research output from Cranfield's world class faculty and researchers.

The March 2010 edition of Think Cranfield addresses ways to better face up to key issues arising from today's challenging environment. In Managing in a Crisis, a disastrous car safety recall reminds us of the need to handle a crisis well. Setting targets is commonplace, and an article describes a 10 point approach to greater effectiveness. We can’t escape from economic realities, and an economist spells out Economic Watchwords for 2010. On a similar note, Maintaining an External Perspective will bring major benefits if you understand how to do this effectively.
