I’m a full time MBA student who’s taken a step back from a career in public sector consultancy and software to go back to uni and learn something properly for a change. I was born in Manchester, to Indian/Pakistani Shia Muslim parents. I’m married to Lizzie, live in Ealing with her and our cat, Laksa. The cat is named after a treasured meal we had at a Penang street stall a few years ago. Here’s a picture of me and Lizzie:
The phrase has also been borrowed by the business community and is sometimes used inappropriately and in contexts that are far from the original scope of the meaning of the term.
I see where the writer/s of that was coming from but I suspect that someone used the term edge of chaos before the scientists got hold of it, so you can’t really blame the business types for using it too. Apart from the fact that it’s often bullshit strategy speak. (I have nothing against strategy speak, just bullshit strategy speak).
It’s also appropriate for me because I’m a bit chaotic myself sometimes. My second choice tagline was “M.B.A. Baracus”.
What will I write about? Things that come up during my time on the MBA – can’t be more specific yet.
