Today: Form groups Get acquainted: HELLO sheets Brief intro to course: why, how See if your group can become a team, by a field exercise Report findings to entire class 7. Form groups: Ideally one from Denmark each group You chose ISUP because it is I so mix nations Gender? In past world run by men, but. If lucky, mix of majors: acct, mkt, ops mgt, etc 8. Get acquainted! Is this a typical first day who are you sheet? And what is that bucket list about? Trivia questions 9. WHY? Why did YOU take this course? Your expectations? Quote: Are you content with just "business as usual" or are you someone who is interested in business in changing the world? We're looking for people like you - people not content to do things the way they've always been done, the disrupters, innovators and visionary entrepreneurs. Leaders who think differently and know there's a better way to do business, and who are ready to embark on a business education that will prepare them to live differently, lead differently and profit differently. Why Environmental Sustainability? Why China? 10. HOW? Powerpoint but that is not key No text but parts of several books on LEARN Lots of interaction Not much lecture 11. Learning resources? Instructor. We have academic qualifications, experience, etc. But think about it: for SURE each person in the class knows things the instructor does not know. So, you will learn from Classmates. You will discuss topics in class, and provide actual business examples PowerPoint slides. Subject to change of course Daily life! Read newspapers, watch leaders at your work Cases! The main instructional resource in this class 1-11 12. PowerPoint slides great. However, PowerPoint? Yes, but avoid overreliance on PowerPoint, and slides will change Others worry about PowerPoint too, including the US Military One Wall Street Journal article had the headline Death by PowerPoint Another article (New York Times) had these comments: 12 13. PowerPoint makes us stupid Brig. Gen. H. R. McMaster, who banned PowerPoint presentations, likened PowerPoint to an internal threat. Its dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control, General McMaster said. Some problems in the world are not bullet- sizable. Elisabeth Bumiller. April 27, 2010, page A1 New York Times 13 14. Exam question? analyze & explain this PowerPoint slide 14 15. Review, what is on today? Form groups Get acquainted: HELLO sheets Brief intro to course: why, how See if your group can become a team, by a field exercise Report findings to entire class 16. LETS EXPLORE! Are companies or other organizations around here doing anything? Any lessons we can learn? LETS EXPLORE! WE VISITED ____________________________ (tell us which organization you will visit NOW, before you leave, to prevent duplications. We do not need 5 teams to look at McDonalds) 17. LETS EXPLORE! WE VISITED ______________________________________ This organization is doing some interesting things relating to environmental sustainability, such as (SOME MAY NOT BE DOING ANYTHING INTERESTING!) However, we think this organization could do better. For example, PREPARE ONE SLIDE OR A FEW SLIDES (MAXIMUM 5 SLIDES) TO SHARE WITH CLASS 18. WHAT DID WE LEARN? WHAT DID WE LEARN? HOW DID WE LEARN? WHO WAS THE TEACHER? (WHO WERE THE TEACHERS, PLURAL) in future we will also learn by reading 19. Learning with Cases in a case you identify who needs help or advice, you analyze, then you recommend. to a large extent this is a CASE course. You may want to look up how to do cases in Google. OR, look at the following slides. 20. What Is a Case? A description of an actual situation, commonly involving a decision, a challenge, an opportunity, a problem or an issue faced by a person (or persons) in an organization. Allows you to step figuratively into the position of a particular decision maker. Field-based with the visit of an organization and collects the data. The product of a carefully thought-out process. 21. Why Do We Do Cases? Examine real life situations Practice our analytical tools Engage in discussion of issues/answers Develop professional attitudes 22. Inventory of Skills Developed by the Case Method Analytical skills Decision making skills Application skills Oral communication skills Time management skills Interpersonal or social skills Creative skills Written communication skills 23. Case analysis? What NOT to do Do NOT update the case Do NOT rehash the case, simply giving the reader a condensed version of the case Do NOT go to the web. BUT if you cannot resist, go ahead, but FOR SURE any phrase you copy, say exactly where and put in quotes. Following may help in TEAM case study 23 24. Analyzing a company issue, analyzing a case - 7 Steps (ONE author says) Defining the issue (or issues, preferably one) Analyzing case data with focus on causes and effects as well as constraints and opportunities Generating alternatives Selecting decision criteria Analyzing and evaluating alternatives Selecting the preferred alternative Developing an action and implementation plan 25. 25 Analyzing Data Causes and Effects To work backward to determine what may be the root causes. Fishbone Diagram: EffecttCause Equipment People Methods Materials 26. 26 Analyzing Data (Continued) There are MANY models, frameworks, you may use. Such as this famous one:Structural analysis of competitive forces Porters five forces model Potential entrants Suppliers Buyers Substitutes Threat of new entrants Bargaining power of buyers Threat of substitute products or services Bargaining power of suppliers Industry competitors Rivalry among existing firms 27. 27 The McKinsey 7-S Framework STRUCTURE SHARED VALUES SYSTEMS STYLE STAFF SKILLS STRATEGY 28. Deliverables Issue identification note: Issue identification is KEY TO case analysis! What is the main thing needing attention? If you do not say what needs working on, your suggestions will be hard to evaluate Analysis and alternatives Recommendations for action Another note: a KEY point! Implementation plans 29. Defining the Issues Produce a clear and comprehensive statement of the issue(s) involved in the case. Clearly identified key concern(s), problem(s), decision(s), challenge(s) or opportunity(ies). 3 things to be considered: Immediate and basic issues Importance Urgency 30. Generating Alternatives Be creative and think widely Consider constraints and opportunities Be realistic and plausible 31. Selecting Decision Criteria Provide the basis for evaluation or assessment measures Common decision criteria: Quantitative: profit, cost, return on investment, market share, capacity, delivery time, risk, cash flow, inventory turn, productivity, staff turnover, time to complete, growth rate, quantity Qualitative: competitive advantage, customer satisfaction, employee morale corporate image, ease of implementation, synergy, ethics, flexibility, safety, visual appeal, obsolescence, cultural sensitivity, motivation, goodwill 32. Analyzing and Evaluating Alternatives List the key advantages and disadvantages of each alternative. Compare and contrast each alternative against the selected criteria Short vs long term Predicting outcomes Quantitative vs qualitative analysis note: all sounds good, but a bit theoretical. 33. Developing an Action and Implementation Plan Be specific Focus to produce the advantages and minimize the disadvantages Planning the implementation Provides a schedule and milestones for the action plan. Provides the measures or signals for the progress. 34. What next class? Again, teams Again, not exactly a normal lecture class Come ready to be creative 35.
