The Research A comprehensive survey of Harvard Business School graduates—men and women—suggests that the conventional wisdom about women and leadership needs to be rethought.

But I started consulting it and reading the entries, and I said, This is amazing.So when the concept of Enterprise 2.0 —a term coined by McAfee on the general idea of how Web 2.0 technologies can be used in business—popped up on Wikipedia, McAfee beamed.
