Welcome to The View from Harvard Business

Last Updated Oct 26, 2007 1:59 PM EDT

Welcome to a new BNET blog, which has a rather unique mission. We hope to provide our readers with the freshest, most insightful research and ideas about business management produced out of Harvard, and more specifically, Harvard Business School.

A staggering amount of business-related research and advice surfaces near the Charles River each day, and from research centers around the world. This blog will serve as a manager's guide to this intellectual capital including the latest faculty research and publications on cutting-edge management issues and their practical applications. We will also explore the latest books, newsletters, online publications and--of course--the Harvard Business Review, created by Harvard Business School Publishing.

I hope you'll be a frequent reader and commentator to The View From Harvard Business.
