Business schools do not teach the fundamental problems of business. What they teach are finance, what they teach is marketing, they teach us HR. As the greatest management thinker of all time, Peter Drucker said, “There are no marketing problems, there are no finance problems, there are no accounting problems, there are only business problems.” These are problems that sloppily span across a bunch of domains and business education has abdicated, doesn’t even try to teach how you think across domains. … consistent with a lot of the huge problems in the world, is thinking that you can decompose things into little pieces and somehow add them up together, and they’ll add up to the whole that you wish, doesn’t happen.
