Organisational guru Henry Mintzberg to visit CBS

Wednesday 2 May 2018
Closed event for PhD students and business communities

How do we restore balance in our society? Should we zoom in on corporate social responsibility, or does this responsibility instead lie in the hands of the individual? The Canadian organisational guru, professor and author Henry Mintzberg will visit CBS to share his thoughts and ideas on this issue – rebalancing society across political opinions and sectors. These ideas are based on Mintzberg’s latest book publication: Rebalancing Society: Radical Renewal Beyond Left, Right and Center.

An attorney will look closely at, for example, the Panama Papers from the perspective of ordinary people, while a tax manager will take an in-depth look at the Danish Central Tax Administration’s (SKAT) processing of illegal information, and the head of investigative journalism at the Danish daily Politiken will discuss the public’s interest in international tax control as regards people’s privacy. And a CBS professor will explain recent years’ tax reforms.
