How To Thrive With Bad Management

Oxford University in England offers a one week summer class called "Mutiny and Punishment" (not cheap) which basically asks, in the context of British history, how the British managed to have the dominant navy in the world while treating its sailors like shit.

Obviously, the details of how this "miracle" was achieved is a question of great ongoing relevance to people interested in becoming managers in modern multi-national businesses (a large share of the Oxford University student body), despite the fact that modern businesses are forbidden by law from engaging in a wide variety of historical naval punishments.
