WEEKEND THINKING: Don’t do as I say; do as I do …

Last week we visited the Palace of Westminster, or Houses of Parliament, where British politicians work and meet.

Certainly one of the most famous must-sees of the beautiful old building is Big Ben, which of course is not the watch, but the clock. And old Ben is now in the process of undergoing a “facelift”.

What was particularly interesting to me was one of the reasons why you can be elected as a member of the House of Lords: being an expert in a certain area.

For example, I immediately think of someone like Lord Sebastian Coe who received the title of Lord in 2000. Who better to talk about sport matters than a former world record holder in the 800 m, with gold Olympic medals in 1 500 m.

Well, what about it?

There are still too few practical inputs from entrepreneurs to promote good decision making at a political level, and even less when it comes to business education.
There are still too many lecturers with an academic foundation who feed future business leaders theoretical information.

This problem, however, starts at a political level in South Africa, where the content of these courses is determined; and therefore I won’t be too hard on these business profs.

So what now?

I leave you with my version of an old saying: “Don’t do as I say; do as I do …”
