Engineers verses M.B.A.s

There will always be disputes between engineers and M.B.A.s. Both groups are of the opinion that they know everything, they often are asked to weigh in on the same subjects and they don't exactly have similar cultures.

This article in Time magazine
arguing that more power should go back to the engineers therefore amused me. He certainly has a point that people in power at a company need to be those most fanatical about what the company produces. Often those people are engineers, after all these people typically went through years of schooling just to learn more about a particular technology.

A similar article in Forbes argues that doctors make the best hospital administrators.
