Socrates in the Boardroom

Why Research Universities Should Be Led by Top Scholars

By Amanda Goodall

Experts, not managers, make the best leaders. It shows that the performance of universities improves if they are led by presidents who are outstanding scholars – leaders who have deep expertise in what an organisation actually does.

To make its case, the book uses detailed data on the world’s universities. It shows there is a relationship between the research ability of a university leader and the later performance of that university. In other words, Socrates should be in the boardroom.
