    How to Mitigate the Shock of Brexit to Financial Services in the EU

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    Most ways to resolve the current stalemate in the UK parliament with respect to Brexit imply that the UK will no longer be part of the internal market for financial services. There is a risk that capital market services in the EU-27 will decline in scope and quality without the UK in the internal market but this risk can be mitigated. In this statement, Professor David Veredas propose that the EU and the UK form a joint high-level committee to develop proposals for simplified and better regulation that strengthens market discipline. He also suggests that the EU and the UK jointly work to enhance and improve equivalence requirements for suppliers of financial services to markets in both the UK and the EU.

  3. Unlearning is as important as learning

    Category: Opinions

    Most of the management principles which we apply today were actually invented 100 years ago. To a great extent, we are still stuck in the basic ideas of that time. According to Dean Marion Debruyne we cannot run and manage organisations which need to be ready for the 21st century using principles from the last century. Along with technological change, we need management change and a different kind of leadership. That’s why unlearning old mental models is just as important as learning new things.

  5. The iPhone is out, so what’s next?

    Beginning of 2019, Apple issued a profit warning due to a decrease in iPhone sales. The Chinese market seems to be a hurdle, as well as the fact that almost 12 years after the launch of the first iPhone, our enthusiasm for replacing our current model with the latest one is dwindling. Actually, it is not just Apple’s problem, says Dean Marion Debruyne. Because the underlying question is whether the wave of innovation driven by the smartphone platform in the past ten years is over. And whether a new platform can result in a new, similar wave of innovation. All eyes are on smart speakers.

  7. How to integrate AI in business schools?

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    According to Professor Steve Muylle, AI will not replace staff or professors; it will simply make their jobs easier and less time-consuming, so they can focus on more important tasks. But if business school administrators are going to successfully deploy AI, they must experiment with it. They must input more data and update common processes so AI algorithms become more specific and efficient. If they do that, business schools will find themselves not only teaching AI at a world-leading level, but implementing it in ways that ensure a tailored, responsive, and high-quality educational experience.

  8. CEOs are not machines

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    Do CEOs really take decisions differently from other people? Is it true that they tend to look more to the future and have a broader view of reality, or is it simply in their character to make bold decisions? Professor Kerstin Fehre explains that we often forget that CEOs are, first and foremost, human beings. We have a tendency to see them as machines that take very rational decisions, which obviously they are not. CEOs are only human and have limited cognitive filters and rational capacities. Professor Fehre conducts research into CEOs’ cognitive processes to see how these influence their decision-making and consequently impact on corporate strategy and results.

  9. Companies need to become extremely transparent

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    To paraphrase Bill Gates: most people tend to overestimate what will change in one year and underestimate what will change in the next ten years. The chances are that 2019 will be very much like 2018. Fashion magazines show you what to leave in your wardrobe, what to buy if you want to stay on trend and what to keep away from if you want to avoid looking hopelessly outdated. Management is also subject to trends. Dean Marion Debruyne talks about the management trends she expects to see this year – including digital ethics, a need for transparency and the importance of agility in turbulent times.

    Category: Opinions

    On Tuesday 15 January the British parliament voted against the Brexit deal. The rejection of the deal has repercussions for industrial production. Even before the vote, multiple sources reported a drastic increase in stocks in the United Kingdom. This could disrupt logistics chains (for a lengthy period). Of course, the havoc will be even worse with a No Deal scenario.
