As ‘pink’ papers go, the Financial Times is a jolly good read. It often seems to me that the FT has the right mix of news and views, a pretty global worldview, good reporting, inspired editing and stories that go beyond business and the obvious — all laced with a dash of British humour. Quite a potent and appealing combination.
FT.com’s management section is something I enjoy going back to pretty often and the FT management blog had become a daily read. What makes the FT stand out is pretty much what made the management blog worth visiting too. It was especially useful as an aggregator of management news, with links to interesting management-related stories from around the Web.
So it was pretty disappointing to read that the management blog is downing its shutters. It’s not very clear why the FT pulled the plug on the management blog. While the last post talks about “doing more with less” it also hints about a resurrection — something to look forward to. For now though, there’s one treat less in my daily buffet.
