The influence of Islamic values on management practice

Tuesday, 26 May, 2015

@TitleIn contrast with current academic thinking on the role of Islam in management, this book reveals that in this part of the Arab World, where there is a pull away from tradition towards modernity, there is a shared perspective from those 'doing management' that Islamic values do not, and should not, have any greater institutional influence on management practice than, for example, Christianity might have in a (secular) Christian country. But what emerges with equal clarity is that Islamic values influence management practice through each individual's own religiosity. The influence can therefore be conscious and deliberate, or unconscious and osmotic, formative or marginal, depending on the individual's own beliefs.

Culinary Resource – In season now, FiddleHeads

Friday, May 22, 2015

As increasing awareness of what we eat and where our food comes from becomes mainstream, we seek to grasp back that connection to our food sources. This connection had previously been evaporating in the wake of big brand grocery stores and, increasing lists of unpronounceable food additives showing up on food packaging. While many people may not be in a practical position to start a hobby farm to feed themselves. Foraging for food is accessible to anyone. >> Read More
