October 21, 2016

WDI Publishing, a division of the University of Michigan’s William Davidson Institute, has published two new case studies written by faculty from the Center for Positive Organizations (CPO).

Emphasizing the Positive: Forming a Strategic Identity for the Ross School of Business” was written by Kim Cameron, Jane Dutton, Robert E. Quinn, Gretchen Spreitzer, and Jandi L. Kelly. This case explores the potential for the Ross School of Business to maintain the positive pillar as a strategic part of its identity. This pillar stands among others, including analytical rigor, action learning, and boundarylessness.

Moo Cluck Moo: Serving Up More Than the Minimum Wage” is a case study by Wayne Baker and Sarah Kurtz McKinnon that explores the benefits and challenges of paying a living wage.
