This is a course that helps you understand what strategy is and isn't. With an incredibly VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) business environment, how can we better train ourselves to be thoughtful business executives? These are the types of questions we will address:

  • How is strategy different from operational efficiency?
  • How can we create a sustainable competitive advantage?
  • What made Southwest, Intel, P&G, Dell, Google, Amazon, and Tencent so successful?
  • How do network effects work? Why does this create an economic moat for Facebook?
  • There has been a rush of companies offering subscription-based services, is that strategy?

We will learn many of the management tools commonly used by executives and managers to make good decisions. We will review 10+ business cases that will help to train your eyes and ears to be a better business executive-in-training.

This course allows students to explore the interplay between markets on the one hand, and culture and society on the other. We focus on a connected set of issues that define the past, present, and future of the global specialty coffee market. This should appeal to business students who want to examine the impacts that markets have, and might have, in a globally important industry. It should also appeal to non-business students who want to explore how perspectives on culture and society merge with current and potential market practices.
