MBA News: Mitt Romney Wants to Help You with Your Goal Statement?

Those of you interested in consulting and private equity—and politics as well—may want to check out an article published by The Atlantic entitled “Romney’s Business,” in which the author discusses the impact these industries would have on a Mitt Romney (JD/MBA Harvard 1975) presidency. Megan McArdle discusses the two distinct styles of management, calling the Mitt Romney of the private equity world a “drill sergeant” and the one of the consulting world a “therapist.” Politics aside, the article offers a small window into a world that many candidates only understand superficially. When we’re talking about a goal statement, superficial just won’t cut it.
