Saturday blast from the past: practical tips for academics, from the world of business

This week’s blast from the past is Brian’s old series of post on what academics can learn from the world of business. Brian spent 10 years in the business world before going to grad school to become an ecologist, so he knows whereof he speaks.

The many hats a PI (or grad student) wears

The best business books for academics

When to call a meeting, how to prepare for one, and how to run one

p.s. all three posts are about passing on practical tips for various everyday academic activities. They’re not about critiquing academia from a business point of view or anything like that.
