Mental Competency still a murky concept
William James College's Dr. Jason Osher was featured in an article in Fortune Magazine. He discussed the difficulty in defining competency and how Mental Competency tests in the C-suite are common. The article focuses on Sumner Redstone, the 92 year-old executive chairman of Viacom. Osher highlights the lack of uniform definitions for competency and how a person, such as Redstone, may be deemed competent in one task but not in another.
