Can Literature Teach Business Decisions? 

"Literature teaches that people who are intelligent can see things differently, and this happens in organizations too. You need to be open and listen to these differences. Literature helps identify the really complicated issues and the stakes on all sides. Grappling with these issues through fiction is good practice for grappling with them in business."
