[Editors Note] This post originally appeared December 8, 2006. The full series will follow this week.

Business, leadership, and management insight are essential tools for you as IT managers as you develop your career path. Every study I read and all the discussions I have with senior IT executives point to this same conclusion.

To help you, in this blog series, we talk with the top international business and management authority, Dr. Karl Moore, from the Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University. You may have seen Karl’s interviews with leading business leaders in the Globe & Mail. We will be sharing some of these interviews here as well.

Thank you and Enjoy!
