Noel M. Tichy, renowned management scholar and educator, to serve as Academic Director of the Jack Welch Management Institute at Chancellor University.

Welcome to a special Insight Channel Podcast on Total Picture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. We're delighted to have back on the show Dr. Noel M. Tichy, Professor of Management and Organizations at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Additionally, he is the director of the Global Business Partnership, a 36-company consortium of Japanese, European and North American companies who partnered to develop senior executives and conduct action research on globalization in China, India, Russia and Brazil. Noel consults widely in both the business and private sectors. Most recently, he's accepted the role as Academic Director of the Jack Welch Management Institute at Chancellor University.

The Jack Welch Management Institute is designed to introduce a progressive approach to business education. Its curriculum will offer students traditional coursework, with instruction on topics from strategy to marketing to finance, but will be melded with Jack Welch's canon of teachings on every aspect of business practice. Further, Jack's core principles of candor, differentiation, and voice and dignity for all.

The Jack Welch Management Institute is unique in other ways as well. Classes will be small; faculty will receive input from Jack, and the curriculum will be refreshed weekly with online video updates from Jack about breaking business news and topics. "We're trying to do something really different and exciting with this school," Jack explained recently. "We want to reach a lot of people, more than you can just reach in one class or at one school, with a management philosophy and set of practices we really believe in. We know they work. We think this school, with its fresh approach, reach, accessibility, and flexibility, has the potential to change lives and organizations for the better."
