Scaling Up Excellence

LSE public lecture

Date: Tuesday 6 May 2014 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: New Theatre, East Building
Speaker: Professor Robert Sutton

Stanford professor Robert Sutton will discuss the lessons that he and colleague Huggy Rao gleaned from their seven year study of ‘the problem of more’, the challenge of spreading constructive beliefs and actions from those who have them to those who don’t.  In other words, what it takes to scale up without screwing up. 

Robert Sutton (@work_matters) is a professor of management science and engineering at Stanford University and the author of six books including The No Asshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss. This event marks the publication of his latest book, Scaling up Excellence.
