STRAMGT 110Q: Making Sense of Strategy

Get the strategy right, and the chance for success is great. Nowhere is this more evident than in today's world of major challenges. Strategy is at the heart of problem solving and achieving objectives, yet few people can define strategy, much less understand how to conceptualize, design, and execute effective strategies that yield the best outcomes.This course will meet once a week to focus on interesting and engaging case studies, each of which illustrates a key ingredient of strategy. Some are well-known historical events, while others are less obvious, but all have a strategic lesson to share. They are quite diverse, from the planning of a high-risk rescue in the Colorado Rockies, to a product crisis in a Fortune 50 company, to a little-known failed military mission of WWII, to a commercial airline disaster. The ability to think through challenging and varied scenarios is both instructive and mind-stretching. There will be some pre-reading on each case study and there may be a fiel more »

The course is designed to be highly interactive; all to enable students to unravel the mystery and power of strategic thinking. Students will also have the opportunity to select and analyze a case reflecting interests of their own. This course can help students not only prepare for a career in a range of fields, but also as they meet the challenges of their current coursework.

STRAMGT 205: Strategic Leadership: Creating and Sustaining Growth

Many organizations are fundamentally committed to growth. This course examines how leaders and their organizations can create and sustain growth. Initially, entrepreneurial companies grow by discovering product-market fit, and then capitalize on that discovery by aligning their strategy and organization to their environment. As they mature, established companies grow by innovating anew, exploring possibilities and changing their organizations into new alignments with new opportunities. This course covers how leaders shape the process of discovery, change, and growth, and how strategy and organization combine to scale success. The course is geared toward students who seek to become entrepreneurs, students who want to join a growing firm in a strategic role, and for students who want to innovate to create new growth opportunities in an established firm.

STRAMGT 210: Managerial Skills

In the Managerial Skills Labs we examine several common managerial challenges faced by executives. Together with Faculty, students explore these topics using four case examples, each asking students to evaluate a series of situations, develop alternatives for their resolution, and ultimately recommend and implement a course of action from the point of view of the company's owner/manager. We have selected small to midsized businesses as the context for these discussions in order to highlight the impact that key decisions and their implementation can have on the broader organization. Class preparation should include not only analysis and conclusions, but also specific recommendations on implementation. Students should come to class prepared to role play important conversations between management and other key individuals.
