IMD NOVEMBER 2010
REAL LEARNING@IMD
IMD online contest
Dear Reader,

The end of the year presents an opportunity to think about values. How open are you? How collaborative are you? How pioneering are you?

In a three-part editorial series, starting with an exploration of openness by Professor Jean-Pierre Lehmann, IMD looks at how these three values - open, collaborative and pioneering - are important for business. We invite you to share your thoughts on openness. IMD will feature a random selection of reader comments at the end of the series.

Have you ever imagined being someone else for a week? More than 3,000 players in IMD’s interactive contest have already told us who they’d like to be and why. See the imaginative and creative responses and vote for the best quotes. You can also give your own answer by playing the contest. Enjoy the rest of the IMD Webletter.
Best regards,
IMD Webletter Team
