The university collective felt that the business school, its credibility now secured through the efforts of two predecessors, needed to return to consensual decision making. Arguably the first director and dean contributed to their own demise through failing to recognise a distinction between negotiated freedom and unfettered freedom, that their freedom to govern was given by colleagues on the basis of consensual decision making.
