Books by Rotman School Faculty Nominated for the National Business Book Award.
August 28, 2018
Toronto – Two books by faculty members at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School were named among the finalists for the National Business Book Award.
Creating Great Choices: A Leader's Guide to Integrative Thinking, published by Harvard Business Review Press, is co-authored by adjunct professor Jennifer Riel and Prof. Roger Martin, a former Dean of the School. In this practical guide to integrative thinking, the authors unpack accepted wisdom and ingrained habits when it comes to decision making. Rather than evaluating options and making trade-offs, they urge a creative approach to foster solutions and improve outcomes.
In Stumbling Giants: Transforming Canada's Banks for the Information Age, published by Rotman – UTP Publishing, authors Pat Meredith, an executive-in-residence at the Rotman School and James Darroch, a professor at York University, explore the global, competitive and regulatory challenges facing Canada's banking sector. In providing historical context for the structure of the industry, the authors question whether it is sustainable in an era of technological disruption and consider the implications – and possible solutions – for Canada and its economy.
Books nominated for the award were evaluated on five key criteria including originality, relevance, excellence of writing, thoroughness of research and depth of analysis. The $30,000 prize will be awarded on October 2, 2018. The finalists were selected from Canadian business-related books published in 2017. Further information on the National Business Book Award is available at www.nbbaward.com.
