Four ‘Sure Bets’ for 2014 (BBC)


In his latest BBC column, Professor Sydney Finkelstein of the Tuck School of Business makes four predictions for the business world in 2014.

One of them: “A CEO will be fired and walk away with tens of millions of dollars in ‘severance’ pay.”

Another: “A young high-tech entrepreneur will refuse to sell his super-hot start-up for billions of dollars to Silicon Valley royalty (think Google, Facebook, Apple).”

A third prediction, which he hopes “is not wishful thinking,” is that more women “will break the glass ceiling of the C-suite in major companies,” writes Finkelstein, the Steven Roth Professor of Management at Tuck.
